I have a nice suit of Ratseys for my ribbed N12; however they smell a thousand years old and have a few marks and stains here and there. Are there any hot tips on sprucing up old cotton sails or do they just go in the washing machine....and if so what sort of wash. I dont want to set anything rusting that currently isnt... Grateful for all advice! Ed
OK Not a N12 but rather interesting! For sale on Appolo Duck Website. Text copied directly from Appollo Duck. (Not mine just passing it on).

Hi All I'd like to get N1833 back on the water. She has been inactive for too long. I would like a wider (or widen the) centreboard case to take a wooden foil. She also needs new side decks and other smaller bits of TLC. I dont have any time available myself so would appreciate recommedations (or offers!) from within the Class as to who would be the right person to return N1833 to her former glory. Not in a big hurry but would be nice to have the option of sailing her if I had some spare time. Grateful for any pointers ta Ed
