Re: Roger be afraid be very afraid

I hope you're not depending on us Moth sailors to help you pull this one out of the water, the Finn is bad enough!

Should be good in a blow as long as the drinks cabinet is on gimbles

Happy new boat

Re: Baltic Warf, 14th Nov, Final event 2015

Thanks to all at Baltic Wharf for an exciting and entertaining day. Its always a fascinating place to sail and with a bit of wild wind thrown in occasionally we had some challenging conditions even for a pond sailor like me. Well done to Giles for a consistently quick performance driving the HIT to ...

Re: Int Moth (Imperium scow) mast wanted

Good to hear you have a usable mast again.
Can you make it to Baltic Wharf on 14th Nov? Alan will be defending home water honours with his Imperium, it would be great to have a pair.

Re: Wooden Enterprise Transom Replacement

A late 70s Enterprise may have been built using epoxy resins although that would depend on the builder. I would suggest using SP106 epoxy for all the joints because with the right mix of fillers it will fill any small gaps while retaining strength. The SP106 can be used to coat and seal all the repa...

Re: Collection of fittings

Pat, Paul

I will take them with me to Banbury. Pleased you can find a use for them.

To build a vintage merlin from the handles would be unethical as they came from a Graduate!

Re: Restoring RNSA 14

I mentioned your find to one of our club elders who was telling us how he learned to sail in one of these and other admiralty dinghies while serving in the Royal Navy, and remembers them fondly. Unfortunately, he doesn't have the plans but he has consulted his "Manual of Seamanship, volume 1 (1937, ...

Collection of fittings

A member of my club was having a garage clear-out and has given me a box of old fittings that may be better used on CVRDA boats. All items free to good home. I can bring items along to Banbury / use CVRDA courier service or post if anything urgently required. [URL=http://s225.photobucket.com/user/sp...

Re: Question for the low rider Mothists.

TimD, sorry for missing this post, it must have moved down the list quickly. I have played around with various tubes for Moth wings and come to the conclusion that it really depends on what you have available and how it can be constructed eg do you have the capability to bend it or weld it? Most 70'...

Re: Int Moth (Imperium scow) mast wanted

Woops, must have been quite a crash! As you say, most moth masts are a lot shorter from step to boom due to the higher foredeck. I suggest you have a look for something like a Solo mast, as being keel stepped there will be plenty of length to cut down. Needlespars are not favoured by the Solo fleet ...

Re: MOTHS AT ROADFORD

Hi Nessa,

We can have a saw ready, will soon make it measure :wink:

Do you still have room on trailer for that moth mast (and was there a boom left over?)

Thanks
