Re: What is an "Avalon built boat?

Uhmm.. . . I'm weighing in from the US because I bought US 102 in 1968 from an avid sailor who was moving to Australia. It came with class-issued USA sail numbers on the mainsail (US 102, they weren't using USA yet). Sailing it is a transcendental experience when conditions are right, but I'm aging ...

Re: IC project wanted

How old, and where do you live?
I have a 1966 cold-molded Avalon in North Carolina, USA.

Re: Um, has anyone looked at the US site recently?

I check a couple of times per week. All the action is the brits and the strines.

Re: Making a slow start

I have a 1960s Avalon that looks identical to "Torment". . . including the bacon slicer. How have folks dealt with that? . . perhaps some links to photos? . .

old IC question

I have a mid-1960s cold-molded mahogany Avalon IC, US #102. I realize that it will never be competitive. She was designed to an earlier rule, is overweight, has a fixed sliding seat carriage, etc., etc. Nevertheless, she sails fine, and if I keep her, I plan to make some changes this Winter, like re...

Re: IC Qs

Thanks for the info. Looking forward to results from Germany. I sail on a small lake in NC, USA. I encounter power boat wakes but not open-water-type waves. At this time , I'm straightening out my rigging/launching methods and getting some "tiller time". Any major modifications would be done this Wi...

IC Qs

Are there some good photos showing details of current IC rigs on the 'net? What are "typical" daggerboard dimensions? (I'm considering replacement of pivoting c'board.) Do you need a movable seat carriage? I saw reference to a Nethercott hull being sailed, and I'm wondering how old it is and what mo...

USA 102

USA 102, a 1960s Avalon, has been repaired and sailed. Most of the rig is original, but I expect to do some modifications over next Winter.
