Hello my friends, time to update my profile.
today i saw "the book" on S&S 48/3 and was surprised, didn`t know of exist.
but clear, who can read, will find it.
there i found the original name "RARING III"
so when i bougt it, it was still on original name.
i tried some time to find any information about "RARING III" in the net, but never succesfull.
may be somebody knows about the history.
what i know, is: there is a sticker on the mast, it says: 1991 Bootsliegeplatz Bodensee.
also i know it was for about 10 years in the hand of richard from turbulence sails in grenada, then it was related to Mc Allister and before i got it Francis T. Cookson was the previous owner.
she was not in good shape
since 18.04.2014 i´m taking care of her.
but still doesn´t look that nice than all your boats.
it takes some time - i didn´t know it is that much.
when i got her, it was just a well build boat for me and i didn´t liked the entrance.
but today after all the work and living a board, i realy love her and i see the beauty.
for the entrance i feel today positive - it will give more security and on top some exercise when climbing up - nice, thanks.
i realy appreciate this forum and say many thanks for all the posted informations and answers.
