Don’t know if anyone makes the OsloJolle any more. It was a fast little fiberglass clinker. Our neighbor, named Carlson (ja sure, ya betcha!) had one, and he and my dad did a horizon job on the Wednesday beer can fleet. Sailed it a couple of times. Sweet.
there's a 29 available in Wisc, dirt cheapm not mineIn about 1972 or so, the R33 won the one ton NAs or Worlds maybe in SD (West Coast in either case). The field included the Ranger One Ton (great boat). The 33TR now rates around 150 with the 1T somewhere in the 120-130 range. Crack the sheets just a bit and there's no question which boat I'd rather be on. Gary Mull designed both but the 1T was nothing but pain to sail. Did a little time on the 27 and maybe the best MORC boat of all time. Enjoy, you have a great boat JPD!
Why would you want to ruin it with a conventional rig? If anything, take off the wishbooms and put on conventional booms on solid (hydraulic?) vangs with stackpacks & full batten sails.
