Re: Vintage International 14 Rally

Rickmansworth SC have published the date of their vintage 14 event. I had been fretting it would coincide with Hunts but fortunately it is the weekend before so doubly worth the trip from deepest west wales to do both of these events. i highly recommend the 14 event at Ricky by the way. chris and Lo...

Re: pembrokeshire one design

ok, two photos the B&W photo is a boat called Undine and was modified with a motor. the colour shot is Tern more original perhaps but well hogged now. length is 18 '6" and if these two are 'one design' the definition of one design is rather vague. built in Aberystwyth 1930s possibly by a small build...

Re: early international 12 foot

i see Gordon Fowler is mentioned in the article from 30 years ago in Classic Boat mag, by John Leather. Fowler took a Morgan Giles 12 footer to the riviera for a contest, perhaps in attempt to encourage a 'better' design, which did not take off. apart from that i can't find any other reference to hi...

Re: Varnish over Deks Olje #1

i once used D1 and D2 on an edwardian punt. I agree that D2 is soft etc as it soon showed problems. i sure another proper varnish will work ove D1 as long as sufficient time is left between the two. l have used linseed and (real) turpentine, half and half, since then followed by varnish and can say ...

Re: Caption reads:

we have a very similar photo of us sailing Iska, Merlin 6 right in front of parliament during one of the Tideway races about 12 years ago. Somewhere on the pathe news website you can find a video of an early tideway race. worth finding for the BBC style commentary.

Classic Boat dec. 1989

Does anyone have a copy of Classic Boat November/December 1989?
I am after a copy of an article in it by John Leather on the International Twelves. A scan or good photo would do.

Re: Zenith - Swedish B Class.

Glad to hear that Zenith is under way again, it always seems hard to pick up a project after a long gap. There is a Sven Thorell connection ( a loose one) to the boat I am restoring at the West Wales Maritime Heritage Museum here in Pembroke Dock after our move. It is an International twelve foot po...
