Re: Meeting at Hykeham (Again)

Thanks to Sam and all the team at Hykeham for their hospitality, even adding the pretty blue Radox to the water so the moth fleet could swim in comfort!

Look forward to returning next year

Cheers

Re: Meeting at Hykeham (Again)

Hi Sam,

I'm looking forward to joining you at Hykeham with Campervan and Sprite Moth.
Barbeque sounds good to me. Likely to come over Friday evening after work.
Doing my best to encourage a couple more moths too.

Cheers

Re: Magnum 8 restoration

Hi Exsailman, welcome aboard, always good to hear of another moth being saved. Hope you can come and join us on (or in) the water soon. There is a lot of moth info amongst these pages, and you might find some more on the Lowrider moths facebook page. https://www.facebook.com/groups/422607964597474/ ...

Re: Enterprise lack of pointing

Usual suspects would be: Mast rake - Is it somewhere near the recommended settings? Check on one of the sailmaker's sites for a tuning guide. Mast foot position is usually fixed on an Ent, but channel type step with pins can be adjusted. Stick with the light to medium wind settings for pond sailing....

Re: Shearwater date change

I am hoping to come to Shearwater this time. Will try and make a weekend of it. Possibly another couple of boats from Greensforge if we're lucky.

Re: Baltic Wharf NEXT SATURDAY

Ian and I were planning to go with our Moths, possibly another moth from my club if maiden voyage tomorrow goes well.
It would be good to have some more joining us though..

Re: Int Moth training day at Greensforge SC

Sorry, but as only a couple of local boats were confirmed ready, we have decided to try and run this later in the season.

Re: Plywood Sealant Tape?

A Womble! brilliant, that was certainly one of the designs i thought would be using a fair bit of fibreglass tape. From the sail number K3683, it would have been built 1977-1978. Was this the Womble that was advertised for sale sometime last year? Pleased it found a good home. You will find plenty o...

Re: Plywood Sealant Tape?

Hi and welcome to the forum, and indeed the classic moth fleet. Great to hear of another one being saved! I think the tape you are looking for is fibreglass tape which is widely available as Steve says. as an example..... http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Fibreglass-Open-Weave-Woven-Cloth-Tape-For-Polyester...

Re: Last event of the year

Can't trust the weathermen! that has to be the lesson learned from Saturday in Bristol. 10-12 mph wind promised but we had mostly 0. Baltic Wharf SC though, can always be trusted to welcome CVRDA visitors to their unique sailing experience. It was pleasing to see a good turnout of classics both home...

Re: Banbury 8th October

Thanks to all at Banbury SC for another great meeting. A slight lack of water in the pond restricted the playing field, but the Race Officer's depth sounding was spot on with the shallows marked, and I managed to keep clear of the mud all day. With a few unpredictable windshifts thrown in, we had so...
