I just purchased a woody Penguin (#4066) for frostbiting. It will need some minor restoration including the replacement of some small wood pieces that have rotted and replacement of the standing and running rigging. I have a few questions for the experts on the panel:
1) There is an area of small rot beneath the stem knee that I dug out. However, as I did that I noticed that in the area where the two chines, keel, and stem intersect, there is some rot. It would be difficult to repair this small area by replacing the pieces. Is Git-Rot, or other penetrating epoxies, a good solution?
2) The boat has two incredibly beautiful wood spars in great shape. Extremely light, stiff, and straight -- so, I'd like to keep them (they need to be revarnished). However, I cannot locate, nor does the class web site have, detailed photos of how to rig a Penguin with wood spars (e.g., traveler, vang, mast rotator, centerboard, shroud track adjusters, etc). I've never sailed a Penguin before so if anyone has pix they can post of their rigged Penguin (a woody, not fiberglass), I would be eternally greatful!
