Anyone who may be thinking about selling their Marblehead in the near term please contact me. I am looking for this boat for a new member who is also new to Radio Sailing.
I have offered to guide him through what could be an expensive Project! BUDGET IS £1500 MAX
Ideally it should be:
Officially measured (or at some recent time)
Modern eg last 25 years (Eg Paradox, Starkers etc)
Free from damage or professionally repaired (if carbonfibre/kevlar)
Longest fin and ballast if possible.
Rigs: swing or conventional or a mix are fine
Sails: condition can be iffy as will probably renew.
Winch and servo both working 100%
No Radio or boat electrics required but will take if preferred.
Ideally we would want a demo sail before committing.
Can travel or meet halfway.
Member is in the Camberley Surrey area.

I have recently acquired a Paradox Marblehead to complement my Stark. It needs a fair bit of refurbishment and some repairs however I cannot find a hull identification number on the boat. It may be it was never measured or having been repainted the original number may have been erased. Previous owner has no information to assist me.
It is an early boat, build No 2. I have contact both the class registrar Roy Stevens and Brad Gibson the builder without success.
The sails display No 29 and there is an international K which suggests it was competition sailed some time ago. The boat would date back to the early '90's
When I removed the paint I found the name " Avantgarde II" underneath.
If you recognise this boat or know of a previous owner or a registered number can you let me know please.
