Re: Re decking a 1957 Finn

Just to throw a spanner in the works - I used 1.5mm constructional khaya mahogany veneers to deck "Larfinn" K465 and it still seems to look good. I first laminated the deck beams of Douglas Fir with spruce stringers. Then, glued and stapled ( removed after glueing ) first layer of veneer in a chevro...

Re: Boom needed for a Finn!

Outhaul Threading.... I have always built the whole thing outside the boom with long tails on the blocks and then you can draw the whole lot inside - bit wasteful in string but you won't lose your temper. Also, get a good understanding of what is going on in there. Andy PS Larfinn that was my boat a...
