A while back an advertisement seeking a new home for the vintage model sailing yacht Quest was placed in this column: https://tinyurl.com/y7ln3ytc .  Jos Verbaken took up the restoration challenge and writes:

'I have registered to display the quest at WBF 2020. Work is well underway and I hope to be able to arrange a visit to Franklin, in particular I would like some help in identifying the various timbers. The hull and deck planking seems to be Huon pine, not sure about the keel, deck beams and transom.

I have made a cradle and fibreglass mold to hold the hull in shape while I work on it.'
