It is in need of some TLC and has been holed this weekend whilst removing from the trailer. Token £ 75.00 to cover cost of recent re...

Spring Clean for the Tempo Scow

After wintering under a tarp I set aside some time for the old girl and am pleased to report that after plenty of rubbing, cleaning and rubbing again the Tempo is fit and raring to go, looking resplendent in a new cherry and white ( Gloucester Rugby Club ) colour scheme. She even passed the `fill it...

Re: weight limit on a trapeze wire!!!

Its gonna be on my tempo scow. The wires and fixings look brand new but i am unsure of how the fixing attaches to the mast. At the mo the fixing goes into a slot in the mast and turns 90 degrees to hold in place. If there is downward force on the wire it should remain in place. Is this correct? I su...

Re: Eureka

Looking back through my information it was waterland not waterworld...sorry if that was the confusion. As far as whether it is a sailing club or not, I assumed it was because I am sure I have seen the words club members whilst on site. If this doesnt constitute a sailing club then again sorry for th...

the curse of the tempo scow

What a frustration. Had the tempo scow for 16 months and only been on the water 3 times. First a capsize after 20 mins due to my inexperience and stupidity, rescue boat and a round of applause from the watching throng. Second broke the camshaft on the car on the way to the water only to be in the do...
