TTT

Had a conversation today with Rod Juffs (mentioned him earlier in the thread) it seems he built all the one-off Sorcerers, bar the very first.
Gonna email him the pics from here later.

What's the latest with the progress (if any) Mr Foolish?

would be very interested in the outcome

Progress has been a little slow as ive been putting the hrs into the Wellcraft while the weather is still good enough, but have made a start and intend getting stuck in over the next couple of months. (yet to find a good quality marine ply supplier though)

was looking through Grahams galleries a while ago and spotted "Whiplash" http://media.boatmad.com/gallery/v/g...1970_.jpg.html would be interested to know the LOA of that compared to "Merlin"(15ft) & "Temptress"(?) (also in Grahams nonracing gallery)

Where did you get to.

Dear Foolish
How far did you get on your Sorcerer research. I've too have a load of info' from Bill Maloney as I own one of the wooden 16' boats. I may be able to shed some light on your boat if you still need any help.

Mystery Sorcerer

Looking through the pics I`ve taken of kelvin sorcerers I can`t find one with a red Maloney style topside (although with owners mods this doesn`t mean too much),but the thing that stands out ,is that the mystery boat has the outer spray rail a bit lower below the Maloney chine ,than the typical kelvin sorcerers seen in the pics have,so no closer to solving the case.
