Re: Merlin 1028

Thanks for that Pat. I wondered about bags but I have got some really nice decking ply which will be sympathetic to the rest of the boat and it would be a shame to cut two big holes in it! I am afraid that sails are going to be pretty much what is available second hand. The ravages of mice and poor ...

Merlin 1028

Having identified the Merlin, got it in the workshop and pulled apart it's time to think about where I am going with it. I should be in a position to redeck later this week with a bit of luck .

Re: Merlin Rocket 1028

Cor, This certainly knocks "We have no record" (RYA) into a cocked hat. I have sailed against 1066 a couple of times and will be quite pleased if I can get "Arthur/Crossbow" out in as nice condition I picked the boat up from Banbury last Sunday but I am led to believe it had been sailed on the Thame...

Re: Merlin Rocket 1028

Thanks for that Ian. It is in remarkable condition all things considered and has been in dry storage for about 10 years. I hope to have it done for next year when ,with any luck, I should be out and about again

Merlin Rocket 1028

Start worrying people I have been given the vast majority of Merlin Rocket 1028 .Now its not often I admit to not knowing stuff but I have no idea about Merlins. Apart from the RYA is there a source where I could find out who built it and confirm my assumption that it is a Proctor 1X ? In the past t...

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

Has the RYA shown any interest in this? They do, after all, represent our sport. Surely this is worth their effort.

Re: Meeting at Hykeham (Again)

Lots of views and I hope interest should produce a good meeting. N.O.R published on this site. Because numbers are uncertain at the moment I am proposing a "Bring and Burn" BBQ for Saturday evening. The club will provide salad and stuff plus the BBQ thingy itself. There is an ASDA about 1 mile away ...

Re: Aldeburgh NOR's Si's Entry Form

If everything goes according to plan Sally and I will be there with our Albacore. Is there a meal available Saturday after racing or have I missed something again
