    Ivory Gull is a 28' (length on deck) Lone Gull 2 designed by Maurice Griffiths. She was fitted out from scratch with a schooner junk rig by David Tyler but the type is not usually junk rigged which is why I'll mention her here.

    The hull moulds are available, for anyone wishing to go the whole hog on one of these.

    Crib is a Rival 41C (centre cockpit) never bermudan rigged, she was exported to Hong Kong as a bare hull and given a Sunbird 90’s Schooner rig.

    How many on the list now?

    I have only just seen this thread. As I have designed junk rig conversions for over 200 boats I have a long list of boat types that have been converted. Some of them are listed on my website www.boswellyachtdesign.com and I will now add a whole load more going back to the early days. It might take a few days!

    Alan: that would be an excellent resource.  If could just list all the types and either post them on this forum, or create a link directly to the list on your website (maybe to be listed under 'useful links'), that would make it a lot easier for members, and particularly new members, to get access to this information.  Once we have your boats listed, I guess we need to hope that someone will volunteer to write a list that can be 'stored' on the website as, eg, a .pdf.  If this is kept updated it could be very valuable to anyone looking to convert a stock boat.

    I Happened to mention this project to Robin Blain and he has sent me an updated version of Fact Sheet No 5 where he has written in some additional boats that he knows about, which are:

    Bolger Red Zinger, Aust, Timber, SMS

    Freedom 39, UK, GRP, SMS

    Swallow Baycruiser 20, UK, Timber, SMS

    Swallow Storm Petrel 15, UK, Timber, SMS

    Tinker Tramp 9' , UK, Inflatable, SMS

    Tinker Traveller 12, UK, Inflatable, SMS.

    Anyone like to volunteer to update Fact Sheet No. 5?

    I thought that was what Georg was doing, but if he doesn't want to, I will update the Fact sheet. However, I think it needs to be made more easily updateable, eg as an Excel spreadsheet. I have started putting all my designs onto a spreadsheet, so I could extend it to include the ones by other people. I have emailed Georg to ask how he is handling the new data.

    Thanks for the offer, Alan.  You are right of course, that Georg has undertaken this project, and I did not mean to stand on his toes - just didn't read far enough back in the thread.  Sorry if I have caused offence.  Perhaps you and Georg might pool resources and come up with an interim list that could be put into an updated format on the website?  Then keep building and updating the list.

    More generally, having blundered on the above, I have been looking at the other Fact Sheets, and only one has an updated format so far, so there are several more to go at.  It makes me wonder if these projects need a designated (co-opted?) committee member to co-ordinate volunteers' efforts and be a one stop source of up to date information on where the projects are at.

    I have now updated the original list on Fact Sheet No 5 and combined it with my own list of junk rig conversions, so it is now quite comprehensive. All I need now is some help to upload it to the right place on the JRA website.

    I have done it as a spreadsheet so that t can be easily updated. Currently it is protected so only I can change it, but I am minded to open it up so that anyone can update the details of the boats. I will keep a backup copy in case it gets mucked up for some reason. 

    So please, one of you clever website people, get in touch with me!  :-)

    I have been through the earlier posts onto this thread and added the boats mentioned there to my list, so it is as up to date as I can make it.
