5.5 FRA 45 - Rudder update - 07.11.2017 by Kaspar Stubenrauch
Maurice FLOC'H Reports on applied changes:
Quille 2004 à profil laminaire et trimmer à lèvres de carbone.
Safran 2004 à grand allongement sur mèche à diamètre renforcé.
Hence a new, longer rudder is confirmed, next to modifcations on the keel with trim-tab.
Keel & mast update - 15.04.2014 by Sebastien Schmidt
During winter 2002-2003, SUI-075 and sister-ship FRA-045b have been updated by setting a new low-surface & low-weight keel fitted with a trim tab, by placing the weight difference in inside ballast and by moving the rig to aft to better share the side force between fin and rudder.
Mast has been changed then for a carbon tube, but I have no recording if the rudder has been also effectively transformed or not (intention was on the drawings).
Date of appendages transformation as mentionned in below Kaspar's note must be corrected : winter 2002-2003 (instead of 2005).

new owner - 03.10.2009 by Jean-Bernard Datry
the new owner is Maurice Floc'h, juli 2009.
Current location : Crozon Morgat
FRA-45(2) known as a artificial name - 17.10.2007 by Sebastien Schmidt
Reason is that there were two different boats wearing the same number FRA-045. First one was the ex-SUI-123, second is this original construction. A non distinction would cause conflicts in the database.
FRA 452 - 16.10.2007 by Jean-Bernard Datry
It is necessary to say FRA 45 and not FRA 452
Sister-ship - 04.10.2007 by Sebastien Schmidt
FRA-45(2) is a sister-ship of SUI-175, designed in 1991.
Information - 17.09.2007 by Sebastien Schmidt
