Thanks Allan! In a nutshell, you've provided me with some great info to get started. Now I feel a little more confident and eager to have the boat ready for spring and a sail; we live on Kelly Lake, WI (http://www.kellylake.net
As mentioned, I've put together a Fairwind, but that came with all the parts! I use to do a lot of sailing on the Great Lakes, but illness has left me having to sell my sailboat(s). The Fairwind is a great substitute and I suspect the Heritage is going to be awesome! In trying to determine its age, I inherited from a close sailing buddy who died, who inherited from a buddy he had that passed away. I'm guessing it's 20 years or mre old. The instructions are yellowed! I knew both the thes guys! I know they would have liked to know it finally got finished!
Again, thanks! Any other help you or others can suggest will be appreciated.
