Re: Taylor Finn K478 for sale

Hi, The shock cord I refer to in my ad is the one inside the boom to return the clew outhaul when released. It is as per the tech drawings in the Finn guide. The knots coem out under the boom and act as a very handy bumber when sheeted in hard.

Re: Used Finn Sails

Hi,

Sadly i can't I am afraid. I still need to fix a leak on my boat before I take it far but planning to do some events this year. Do you have any ideas on getting the centre plate out of a Taylor Finn???

Regards,

Andy

Re: Used Finn Sails

Hi I own a Taylor Finn 478 with a Needlespar rig I think a black top so put me donw for a sail and I hope to get to Roadford this year. I need other Finns to sail agains that are not Devotti or Pata! Weirwood would be a good venue for a future CVRDA event maybe.

Rgds,

Andy
