Hi

I've returned to the 505 Class to sail with my daughter (she was bored in a RS200) and I recently purchased a composite boat to get us going that was plated as a parker 2769 (this was stuck on with double sided tape). The chap selling it said it had been updated but in the cold light of day, it is obvious it is a parker 24 dating from the 1980s rather than a 1960s boat. On the 505 register, 8022 is a Parker 24 Composite.

The are 3 mains, Rush renumbered to GBR 8022, Meripurje L8022 that doesn't looked renumbered and a rebellselel numbered S 7351. The L8022 sail and the centre board are marked with the world championships of 1991.

The boat is light green which must be slightly unusual and I have some photos on Google. plus.google.com/photos/11670674699354439.../5944400197374420561

It would be great if anyone can give an indication what the number might be or can dissuade me it isn't 8022. If my daughter continues to sail, we intend to do the worlds in 2016 and it would be easy if I had a measurement certificate by then.

Any help gratefully received. Best wishes

Adrian

Hi Adrian,

coincidence, I am also restoring a green Rondar number 7822 which was found standing on a farm in Aliwal North, South Africa. It features double poles, gybing board and fore aft sliding adjustable sidestays, features which seem to be coming back into fashion in 2014. I cannot say if your number is correct or not but the green hulls seemed to be popular around the 1980's. The first registration of this boat appears to be in early 1986.

I am rebuilding the centreboard casing to match the more modern Rondar layout.
