Hoping to do some justice to the legacy that Camp Freddie established once we get the Zapata back on her feet. Im really struggling to find much history on the boat before she reached mainland europe so im not sure if she's dropped here rig before. The sparcraft stick i'm replacing is sleeved from just above the boom gooseneck, down to the base. But no sign of breakage on the outer sectrion from what I can see. But its possible to hide a good weld I guess.I remember Freddie from the east coast back in the day. Tormented the elderly Essex boys in their big fat cruising boat's when the breeze was up. Pretty well sailed that said.
Is this the boat that dropped it's rig on the way to Ireland for Cork one year? To be fair it was a pretty fresh trip if I remember correctly.
Great boat. Should be a fantastic ride when she's all prettied up.
Would be good to know more about the Zapata/Rocket 31 history if anyone knows anything..
