Re: Minty green Moth restoration

Very nice! If I can get the Europa looking anything like as good as this I'll be very happy

Re: Historic PY numbers

I'm sure in the 80s Yachts and Yachting did a class guide every year, which included such things as PY. Not sure how far back this went, but presumably tracking down the appropriate copies of Y&Y might be easier than official lists from way back when?

Re: More Moffs

While we're on the subject, I'm now the proud owner of Europa Moth K2588, having bought it from Sami earlier today.

Re: National 12 - design?

Is it based on the Chapter? What was the design philosophy? Did they go reasonably well?

Re: I14 K869 Agamemnon

Sorry to hijack the thread, but as it's something of a dream to own a classic 14 but somewhat impractical in terms of sailing one, an alternative 12 rig is an interesting option.

Re: I14 K869 Agamemnon

Looks surprisingly good in fact. What 14 is that?

Re: Sprog

My first thought was that it looked rather Snipe-ish. My second thought was that you'd need a crew and helmsman who got on rather well, given the size of that cockpit

Thanks. Interesting, I could have sworn I could see another chine on the side on image. Bit late number for a Baggy isn't it? Mine was N3342, and that was lateish.

National 12 - design?

Interesting looking N12 on eBay. It's a four-planker, single floor. No mention of a sail number or a design on the page. The shape looks Mike Jackson-ish to me - a Cheshire Cat or perhaps a Tiger, with that tall stem and high foredeck but that radiused transom makes judging the shape of the stern a ...

Re: probably really easy but....

Is it an old Snipe? The transom looks distinctly Snipey, and the overall shape seems to fit as far as I can tell from those photos. Correction. No way is that a Snipe. I misinterpreted the transom pic thinking it had a much deeper V whereas it is actually really boxy. Odd shaped thing overall. Just ...
