Re: Roll up, roll up, buy an entire museum collection

The last few pages are real history, esp the early IC, and the 14's from the 20's.

Re: Looks Like a British Moth?

I had another look at the boat last week. The mast step is definitely a socket. The remains of the sail are attached to a basic boom, and it has a luff sleeve as a Laser would.
