Ahoy - New novice member here, starting from scratch with my project 1960 Dorsett Catalina. Directed to GSG by Brett Bartlett (thank you very much) knowing there are others that share my passion for Dorsett, and other glassic craft. My new find has healthy hull with solid spars and stringers, newly installed transom and outboard done by pros, and many/most original parts and pieces, albeit tired and well worn. Gel coat needs total reconstitution or new paint after proper prep.

I am hoping GSG members can guide me to sources, advise, products, procedures, as I tackle this beauty with hopes of keeping it as ‘faithful’ to original as possible. I am excited to find the boat and more excited to find a group that is passionate about seeing these historical gems restored and kept in the bright sun, where they belong.

I look forward to a fruitful exchange, and hopefully meeting some of you in the process. Cheers . . .

Cool New to Glassic boats and the forum

Hi there. I was given my first glassic boat last week.
Through researching I believe it's a 14' 1960 Corsair of Texas boat with the original Flying Scott 60 motor.

I can't find a single picture of any boat by Corsair other than the small black and white print ad posted on fiberglassics.

If anybody has any pictures or knows more about this builder than the tiny bit I've found I'd love to hear from you.

I posted several pics in my album of the boat. Looking forward to the project.

Saw your pictures and the boat looks GOOD! Does it RUN? A friend of mine had a CORSAIR back in the early 80's but his was a different model....more of a low profile, "SK" type hull with a flatbottom and no windshield. His boat was a looker sitting on the beach, but a structural deathtrap, and the previous owner had actually screwed 2X4's to the OUTSIDE of the bottom, which as you can imagine, completely sapped the performance badly, like dragging 2 anchors around all day! HA!
