First, Hello to the group members, this is my first question for the forum: I am in need of some info I think; I am getting pretty serious about starting a Devlin Nancy’s China. I have narrowed my search from many, many designs in this category, to this boat. My question is along the lines of the available support for this design and maybe some additional images for ideas? Based on my research, there seems to be a general “feeling” that this is an older and well established design (is “well healed” the right term?)
That being the case, I would think that there would be at least a few videos of a Nancy’s china under-sail? Maybe some pics of dozens of builds and images of many finished boats on-line to drool over? This, however, does not seem to be the case; I can’t find even one video, and although there are perhaps a hundred pics on line, they are of maybe 8 to 10 boats. Most of the pics are not even of the Nancy’s china, the are incorrectly categorized versions of Devlin’s Eider, or Winter Wren. Where are all the Nancy’s china’s? Any ideas, hints or tips that could be passed on would be excellent. Are there things that, if modified on this design, would work better, or is the design quite solids as presented?
I am starting to get pretty excited about getting started!
