Re: 420 Rigging

There are 2 manufacturers, Holt Allen & an other (who i cant remember) with the kicker being of slightly different design to each other. However, both sys...

PY Numbers

May have been asked before, but searching the forum has not revealed much, so......... Merlins have an age related PY Number, are they the only ones? Not sure what PY number i should be using for a 50 year old Hornet? Or, (as i expect) is there more to it than just the age of the dinghy? Cheers Mark
