      Any old Laser rigs laying around down there in paradise? You might
      be able to cut the upper section smaller and make it work. I have a
      client that just built a small boat that is buying sails for it.
      Other builders have made sails from an improved type of tarp
      material. Do a Google search on Stevenson Boat Projects. I think
      that's the name of the company.

      Hello Richard, Nice to hear from you in one of my favorite places on earth! The Holder 12 you re working on may very well be the same one I enjoyed sailing

        Hello Richard,

        Nice to hear from you in one of my favorite places on earth! The Holder 12 you're
        working on may very well be the same one I enjoyed sailing off the beach on the
        North end of Isla Muejeras (Coco Beach?). It was the first time I sailed a Holder 12
        and I can't imagine a nicer setting than on the clear aqua blue waters and gently
        rolling surf of the Carribe! We loved our visit there, enjoying conch, hopping around
        the island on a moped, swimming in the warm waters in January. Back home, when a
        used Holder 12 became available I bought it immediately!

        I no longer have my Holder 12 but I spent hundreds of hours of very enjoyable sailing
        her around the Seattle area including the weekly Duck Dodge race. I'm now sailing a
        Laser which is faster but a much more physically demanding boat. Good luck on your
        project, I can definitely say the H12 is a great beach boat for Isla Muejeras!

        PS to all: there's a new Duck Dodge website at www.duckdodge.org - My Laser shows
        up in the results as "O Barquinho" (after the Brazilian song translated as "My Little
        Boat".)
