Re: Goose neck wanted

Thanks Garry,
Sailed Diabolo for just the second time Saturday. Wind very light, tide quite strong with the result that it took us 90 minutes to do half a lap. Nearly reached the mark here after 75 minutes. Lots of practice roll tacking though!

Re: Goose neck wanted

David,
That would be great. I'm off to the States nest weekend for 3 weeks but will check the forum and still get email, if infrequently.
Thanks!

Goose neck wanted

I'm looking for a goose neck on a track that can be used on a wooden mast if anyone has a bronze or stainless one. I'd be happy to pay.
Thanks,

Pat,
We can squeeze another car in front of our house in Putney, how big is your van? No particular security except it's right outside our bedroom!

David, Your copy of Publisher should give you the option to print it as an earlier version/incarnation, if not as an RTF or pdf file. We wait with baited breath!

David,
I don't have publisher on this computer, which has Windows Vista, Office 2007, (no publisher) but tried to open it on an older XP machine which has publisher and it said yours was a different version. Mine is from office 2000. Current, 2007 Office won't do it in any of the apps.

The Solo will only come up swamped if you have your weight on it when you capsize, ie climb over onto the centreboard. If you fall in the water and then right it without getting all your weight on the board, it should come up virtually dry. That has been my extensive experience! Nick I'm hydrophobi...

Got home at 11 last night with a wooden mast. (hog stepped) It’s about 18 inches longer than my deck stepped ali mast and about the same length as a wooden (deck stepped) mast that was off a tall 25’ rig. It’s covered in bird poop and looks a bit fragile at the top so will have to strip it and...
