I've just purchased one today. I am Looking forward to restoring this craft. It is reall in good shape just needing some cosmetic work. I am however trying to find specs on a piece that is missing. There is a handle to rais the centerboard that appears to be missing a latch mechanism that holds it raised. Not a major issue as I can see but I would like to either have the piece made or purchase one.
There's a guy, screen name 'davefrommaine', his last name escapes me at the moment, who is an Sailstar expert. He completely restored his own Tallstar. (and it was a COMPLETE wreck when he got it - I've seen the pictures ). He also does articles for 'Trailer Sailer magazine. You might really benefit from getting in touch with him. He's also the moderator of a Sailstar Yahoo Group groups.yahoo.com/group/sailstar/
That's where I would start.
Best of luck with it.
