Re: British Moth

BM 459 is now in my garage awaiting some TLC, many thanks to Steve and the CVRDA forum. Still interested in buying more Moths - it's becoming a bit of an obsession.

Re: British Moth

Thanks again - possibility I could come over this Saturday late afternoon (tomorrow), but more likely a week on Sunday if that's OK. I've got a decent road base and the means to lash a trailer to it. Will give you a call to arrange. All Best, Gavin

Re: British Moth

OK great - which weekend day suits you best? Possibility I could come over sometime this weekend, but more likely next weekend if that would be OK.

Re: British Moth

I'm afraid it does look at bit too much of a project for me - but thanks for suggesting it!

British Moth

There is some interest at my local club (Rickmansworth) in British Moths and I am keen to help get a fleet going. If you have an old British Moth around the £300 mark, ideally not too far away and perhaps needing some TLC, then please do message me. I have also posted on BMBA website and am keeping ...

Winter Boat

I'm looking out for a dinghy to tidy up over the summer for winter use when my Moth and Merlin go into hibernation. Mainly for single handed use - so I thought an early British Moth or Solo, or even a Firefly or similar. Not much money in the kitty, but very happy to do cosmetic work / upgrading etc...

Older than I am - and clearly in much better condition.

British Moth ONONO on the Bay

Spotted on the Bay; I'm sure I've heard of this Moth before, shame to see it in such a sorry state. I'm tempted, but have bought my old and marvellous BM617 back.

Can the panel help me please? I've purchased a British Moth with a hull which has been largely stripped of paint. Apparently that there was a small leak into the front bouyancy tank, hence stripping the hull. The hull looks extremely sound indeed, and the leak was thought to be at a joint between tw...
