Well, the hatch may have been wood, and it slid back so easily 
when I locked up It felt like a fiberglass job but I knew that 
the boats had wood hatch tops originally. I will be checking 
all this out and then some. Thanks for the note on that because
what ever they did, it looks like fiberglass as opposed to painted
wood. All the rest of the stuff, including another suggestion 
on sikens(sp) is good.  thanks,

TO prevent getting too, windy, I am following along with a lot 
of things. Still getting a lot of good material on the boat
and history including Jean De Sud and the circumnavigation. 
There is another sailor(dry docked--dried out? ) at work 
with whom I have been consulting. He raced a newport SF bay 
and his other favorite is Sabre though he is more into the 
modern underside, fin keels, skegs and racing.

I thought i was on to area bargain on the Cat 22 for my son
but it turned out the price was for the swing keel only on 
a poorly worded advertisement. My first words were: Do I need
to drill holes in the bottom to drain the water out while 
sailing. He said no,  but but thought the story was funny...
only that he was getting so many calls due to the ad..but 
for a refit type boat not a swing keel only...

The young bloods of the South; sons of planters,
lawyers about towns, good billiard players and 
sportsmen, men who never did any work never will. 
War suits them.. They are splendid riders, first 
rate shots and utterly reckless. These men must 
all be killed or employed by us before we can hope 
for peace.
