Re: Any idea..?

None at all....

First glance made me think Aquabat, but the mast is stayed.... Sail is clearly a cut down Enterprise sail... whole thing may be a lash-up...

Re: National Rally - who is coming?

I'm coming, with small tent and double stacked boats... Which one I sail depends on whether I have a crew or not...

Re: ballast lost from centreboard

Nice job! How much weight does that add to the centre board?

Is its absence noticeable?

Re: Staunton Harold in June

Sounds good but I probably won't be there until 8... Best I eat en route, and maybe join you there later...

Re: Stealth

Yes! Bring it!

I've proved that orangeness, and not-lost-because-never-found-ness are not an issue!!

We'll just give you the PY of a Moth and everything will be fine... :lol:

Re: Old Proctor mast 'rivets'

Early "pop" rivets apparently left none of the mandrel in place after setting, if this article from August 1942 is to be believed... https://books.google.co.uk/books?id=XicDAAAAMBAJ&pg=PA95&dq=popular+science+cannon&hl=en&ei=iWS1TPuiHtKynAenh4Vr&sa=X&oi=book_result&ct=result&redir_esc=y#v=onepage&q=...
