Good on you, Jacko, for retaining Braine gear. It always looks so elegant on an old model yacht.
It appears to be bread and butter construction too. But at 60" long it's no tiddler. It'll look superb on the water. I have an ex Braine steered pre-War Marblehead which I have sanded and repainted. Saving up for sails now! The Marblehead is, of course, like all of them, 50" long.
Did you find out what class she is?
