Re: Moth Wombat 84

wicked, glad you are enjoying it.. do you use a halliard to raise the sail? or do you slide it on with the boat on its side, i find mine goes into the track much better if i slide it in from the top of the mast down, however i have a carbon not ali mast so i suppose there are probably differences.. ...

Re: low rider - what model?

well worth starting to get as fit as possible right now, it is going to push you far beyond anything you have ever sailed before! in a good way.., I only lasted half an hr the first time I sailed mine, capsized about 15 times and just ran out of puff, its well worth putting a t foil on, it will save...

Re: Basket Case. magnum 9.9 international moth rebuild.

Aahh, cheers all, I'm not done yet... I reckon a few more weeks before she hits the water again, I have a few composite bits to make, and she needs a good coat of paint.. but she will get done.
