My name is Quinton. My family and I just purchased an RL24 MK1 in Perth Australia. The boat was a bit dilapidated and I am in the process of getting her back to being tip top boat. I have really been supported by my fellow trailer sailors and hope to report back on some of the work and experiences of us on the boat. I have a limited budget after buying the boat but it seems there not to much by way of means of making her a safe boat.
All in all I will be taking her out on the swan a few times just to get the hang of things one step at a time. I have sailed a Micro sail and a few cats and a contender. So as a family I think it time to step it up to a bigger boat hence the RL24. I would love for my kids to get a love of sailing. I hope to continue the dialogue with other RL owners.
1. Busy putting up guard rails for my kids and in need of a front pulpit, how do I get one?
2. I would love to get pictures of other RL 24 Mk 1 rigging as mine has been changed and I'm not sure were things go?
3. I don't have any documentation with the yacht? Did it come out with any manuals ect?
HI Quinton,I too own an Rl and live in Stratton, Perth. If you would like we could get together so you can have a look at mine & perhaps I may be of some assistance. Mob 0439776406 Michael. I may even learn from your RL.
