F- 29(a) & F- 29(b) - 04.06.2008 by Kaspar Stubenrauch
A letter from Pierre Souben dd. 22.09.02 is reconfirming the history of "Janael" F-29:
She was built in 1966 (1st owner Jacques Barbou) and was lost in a transport accident in 1975, on the way to the World's in Neuchatel.
Using most of the original drawings, Egger built a new boat in cold laminated wood, adding a new keel and a separate rudder.
Once the (a)&(b) solution for the database is found, the respective data will be tranferred to separate files.

Mentionned in the Corsier-Port register as Snowten II, F-29, design Henri Copponex for Chauvot, but it seems as a mistake. See FRA-16
