    Re: Stanchions

    A stantion and line is useless if you really want to have something to grab on to. Your balance and life depend on it.
    There are no photos here of your boat so that does limit this discussion.

    Re: 1954 Trojan Sea Breeze

    Take an ice pick and see if you can push it through any suspect boards.
    You will have your answer if that board needs replacing.
    You are going to need a large shop vacuum. You will use it a lot.

    Re: Wittholz Corvus vs. Bolger Catfish

    A skeg is under the "run" of the keel.
    A keel could be as minimal as a wide plank running fore and aft the length of the hull.
    A skeg is also aft of centerboard,fin or keel. Donald Branscom

    ALL lockers and lids must have a latch on them!

    If you do not have a way to latch them the contents can get loose and injure you.
    It has happened many times.
