    • Does anyone have a set of plans or general arrangement drawings for a Bantock Revival?    Don't really needs the hull lines as I am renovating an existing boat. Just really need position of mast,  fittings etc.
    • I am restoring an older wooden built Revival at present.  A friend of mine has access to a spreadsheet of registered 6 metre boats and  came up with the details of a registered Revival.    They were   displacement = 12.2 kg.     A for mainsail = 1720 mm  B for mainsail    = 539 mm  J  measurement = 541mm Mast measurement mark from front = 591mm.   My own boat looks like it will turn out just over 12 kg  (keel and bulb being detachable and weigh just about 10kg) A = 1720 B  = 520 J for these sails = 560     Mast measurement from front currently looks like it is going to be around 570mm. The rearmost position for the mast is limited by the way the boat has been constructed, there being a keelbox which limits how far aft the mast foot can go, the mast itself fitting into a wooden box presumably held in place with wedges   Only problem with this is, with the existing sails , the front forestay mark is literally falling off the front of the bow.  I may look at a different sail plan with a reduced J measurement.   Hope this is helpful.
