Re: Aldeburgh YC 3rd and 4th September 2016

I am hoping to do likewise, having booked a couple of touring sites for my campervan during the week. Should be in Aldeburgh by Friday I will be sailing an Int Moth as long as she survives Hunts!

Re: National Rally - who is coming?

Can you save me space for a campervan please? I will be travelling down on Saturday morning.
Bringing Dolly the Sprite for me and the Magnum7 for Tom. Should be fun as he's not raced a moth for at least 20 years!

Re: Roadford 16th -17th July

Thanks to all at Roadford for a great weekend. Good racing on Saturday, sadly no wind on Sunday morning so Alan W came up with a novel team building exercise - How many people does it take to make a Flying Fifteen fly? The answer appropriately, 15, all complaining about bad backs, plus a few more to...

Re: UnSkol gets a newbottom...

Would some righting lines fastened under the gunwales help? They seem to help on Solos which suffer also from too much side buoyancy. I have seen them anchored near the shroud points then led around to a Velcro fixing at the transom which can be pulled free. A rope step fashioned at the right length...

Re: Moth wing attachment

Ahaaaa! that's where they went. We suspected they might go to a Minisailor needing a bit more leverage :wink: Spiderman won the other bits for a future project. The simplest mounting for the inboard end is a vertical Ali plate shaped with ears to slot the tube over. I will add a photo of the magnum ...

Re: Wanted - International lowrider Moth

Ah, good. I remember seeing that boat on our walk to the pub, looked tatty but with some effort would be a quick machine.

Plenty of help available Henry, both here and on lowrider page, approved yesterday!

Hi Nessa,
Are you thinking of a blue Axeman that looked abandoned in the trailer park at Hunts?

Re: Baltic Warf, April 9th

Thanks to all at Baltic Wharf for an exciting and friendly day's racing. A pity that more couldn't have made it as there was plenty of wind all the way for the heads of the harbour race, although it did get a bit shifty in the middle section. A dead run most of the way down the harbour made for a wo...

Re: Baltic Warf, April 9th

I'm hoping to go with my Stockholm Sprite, Stuart with his Magnum 8 and I think Ian will bring his Shelley out. That's a decent Moth fleet for entertainment already!

Re: Are we ready for reproductions yet?

And that plan is dated 1978, and calls for the seams to be taped, presumably with polyester resin... Although WEST epoxy appeared in the UK around 1977/78 it was used in the states long before then. I was surprised to find reference to epoxy resins in the US Patent for John Shelley's Moth design fr...
