Mark 1 rig sails, mast and gaff was created by Mike Heath
I've got a set of sails, mast and gaff from a Mark 1 rig that I need to dispose of - (garage clear out). They all came off a 1963 built boat (number 766). The gaff is un-slotted and the mainsail laces onto it. I'm guessing that the sails are not in fact the 1963 originals - they were measured and signed in June 1978, manufactured by Rockall, and in good condition (not going to win any major races of course, but very clean and undamaged). The gaff is in good condition too with no splits. The mast was sanded down and revarnished about 5 years ago. Its marked but perfectly sound.

I guess that there are very few bits of Mark 1 rig around any more, so before sending them to the dump I though I would see if there is anyone out there in the business of restoring an old boat to its former historical state who might want them. I don't want any money for them and would just be happy to pass them on to someone who could use them. The catch is that I live in the NE of Scotland, but I could bring them to the Scottish Championships at Loch Ard if anyone is wanting to pick them up from a slightly more southerly location.

For interest, the hull of boat 766 is curently going strong with a bermudan rig and centre main, and doing respectably well in the club general handicap series at Aberdeen and Stonehaven Yacht Club. So there is still some hope for older boats yet!
