Re: Dry Suit Revival

I have the same dry suit, mine has started to leak a little around stiched areas (knee area) after 3 seasons. Not sure there is anything that could be done?

Re: 420 Rigging

Thanks, been through most of google looking for an answer. Looks like it may be trial and error till i find out otherwise!

Re: 420 Rigging

There is a mast step, 2 of them as Sami pointed out to me! The step is more of a long notch which the mast sits in and over, but this notch will allow the mast to move forwards and backwards.

Evening all, As you are probably aware, i am now a happy owner of a 420 (thanks Sami) but im a little miffed about the mast set up! I am aware that it needs chocks, but the bottom of the mast seems free to move forwards and backwards 4-5 inches! Is there anything supposed to be there to stop this, o...

420 bits

As i have had one of Solentgal's 420's i am looking for a few bits to finish kitting it out.

At the moment im just looking for a half decent rudder, spinnaker pole and mast chocks, anyone got anything that might resemble them in anyway?

Cheers

Re: Various boats and gear for sale

Nice meeting you both today Sami,

I now have the dinghy set up ready to go at the club.
Cleaned up quite nicely with the jet wash, might even get chance to put it on the water tomorrow :wink:
Will take the camera with me tomorrow and try and get a few pics!

Cheers
