Afternoon all,

Recently I have been given a Seafire, sail No.42.

The current condition can be seen following the link below:

I intend to fully restore this dinghy, as I have done with an Enterprise as per this link:

However, this is a much bigger project as it will involve replacing the deck, researching etc. It would be great if it could be as original as possible.

I kindly ask if you are able to provide any details or buildings diagrams / drawings on what this type of Seafire should look like.

Thanks in advance!

Regards
Gus

Angus - is the 13007 in your username by any chance your Enterprise sail number?
If so, I know the previous owners of that boat and it has even competed in cvrda events at Shearwater.

Hi, no it's nothing to do with the Enterprise. The boat nuber is 9650. The sails with that aren't the original ones.
