Replying to:What should I watch out for on an RL24?
My apologies if this has been asked here before, (I suspect it has, but couldn't find it), but I've managed to finally convince my wife that I need a trailer sailer, and I've been offered an RL24 that looks promising. I'm going to go around and have a look this week, but I was wondering if there was anything in particular I should look out for? In particular, has there been any known problems with softness in the deck/hull due to issues with the plywood core? And anything in particular to watch out for on the keel? I'm not sure if it is a MK1 or 2, but I'm guessing a MK1. I'm looking forward to seeing the boat, although I don't expect it to be in anything like perfect condition. Back when I was very young my father almost purchased an RL24 but instead went for the Austral 20, and I've always been curious about what the RL would have been like if he'd chosen that. I do have experience sailing, (mostly OTB cats and larger cruising keelboats), and I helped build an 18" lapstrake ply dinghy, so I know my way around the deck and I figure I can do at least some restoration work, but the RL24 is very new to me.
