Re: Holt Builders Plate

I am looking for one of these for N1002 which I rebuilt recently. Enquired about getting one made, they wanted £45, not keen.

Re: National 12 - design?

Over the years I think I have built about 15 Nat.12's. The last 8 being to my Man O War design, the latest is N3521.

Re: National 12 - design?

This boat is N3424 which I built in 1997. It was the first Man O War design that I built, just to make it look different it had a curved transom, a lot of work but a bit of fun

Fixture list

Having spent the last 2 years rebuilding N1002, including 23 new ribs I am hoping to race the old girl next season. Does CVRDA produce a fixture list showing suitable events Thanks.

Re: Removing rubrail from Ent.

Talk to Robbins in Bristol, they will produce the timber you require ,cut to length and profile you require. Get a plug cutter and away you go.
Best of luck Dare Barry N1002

Paul. The boat you are looking at is a Crusader design built in 1982 by Gerry Ledger.Gerry build good boats and once done up this would be a quick boat for inland club racing. Hope you have a go.
