I am in the process of bringing back to life Merlin No.2116 "Zigger Zagger". She has a strange sail set up,the mast is rigged in a diamond configuration through the spreaders and the shrouds miss the spreaders completely. The mainsail measures 2250mm foot x 5500mm luff, the jib I have not measured. I would like to know what I have, and if getting some decent second sails is possible.I know she has been laid up for at least 35 years. I want to try to keep her as original as possible, with the intention of entering in some classic events eventually
According to the book she's a Proctor 9B built by Chippendales and Zigger Zagger is the name registered.
She was built in 1968 and from the Year books seems to have spent most of her life in Essex.
