Planet Class - Jupiter

Jupiter had been on loan to the now closed racing and Riverboat Museum, part of EISCA. So far as I can tell she was not auctioned, an official list of boats contained a record showing the loan, but no former members of staff seem aware of her whereabouts and I received no communication while the col...

SCOW International Moth 3134

After three years sitting in my garage, I think it's time for this boat to have a new owner. 3134 is a 1971 Imperium in very usable condition. Not that heavy and very strong. Easy to sail and will cope with a light weight helm up to my 14st no problem. See pics on the Gallery, Whitefriars 2010. Refi...

Fancy your own Planet?

Having not sailed for over a year, maybe it's time thin out the fleet. Jupiter, probably the only Planet class dinghy still around, is in the garage in bits, but complete and with lots of original bits. There's a pic taken after her first restoration a few years ago on the Dinghy Database, she's rea...

Int Moth Skiff Hull - Free

Well the boat's not been collected, so I'll make the offer again. I have an Int Moth skiff hull from around 1971; rather Mistral like. It was in an awful state and was restored using good quality marine ply to a point where it should be usable for a season or two. Now red paint, varnished deck and i...

Re: Int Moth Hull - Free

Well it seems to have been snapped up after 20 mins, so one lucky person will find out how it goes. Sail number is 3140 as I recall, not mentioned in the on line year books available, so no idea what design it is. Something similar turned out one day at Bristol Avon SC in the 70's and in a light bre...

Int Moth Hull - Free

I have an Int Moth skiff hull from around 1971; rather Mistral like. It was in an awful state and was restored using good quality marine ply to a point where it should be usable for a season or two. Now red paint, varnished deck and interior. Stored inside since. Hull only with minimal fittings, dag...

Re: mast step for international moth

Hi I changed the foot of my spare Needlespar. I have this to fit a 45mm internal tube. Yours if it solves the problem.

Re: centre board

Hi Cathy I think you'll find that the Int Moth board is a much simpler form than either of the other Moth classes. I've made a couple of boards for my two oldies and they work just fine. Start by having a read of the Hardware document here http://www.moth.asn.au/moth/?page_id=5 to get the general id...

Re: Wanted.......Merlin Rocket.

I have been asked to help move on 1983, built by Wyche and Coppock, which belonged to a sailing pal who sadly passed away some months ago. I'll take some photos and check out the sails soon, but this was a fussy owner, so I think everything will be fine and it's a complete boat. Had a look under the...

Re: parts for moth sailing dinghy

Hi I have a scow Moth 3134 (1970) and was lucky to get a skiff 3140 from Ivan Coryn in the spring. It seemed a good idea at the time, but if I'd been luckier, I'd have failed in this attempt at ownership, the boat needed some challenging patching where the bottom was rotted out. Still it's done and ...

Re: Wanted - thin strip of mahogany

Hi Craig I probably have a bit of something from the 70's, from South America I'd guess, that could be cut down to suit. Nice rich red tones when varnished. Do you need it finished/planed to the exact size or just a bit of oversize material to work with? Which bit of the Ent. are you repairing/repla...
