Re: scow moth on the bay

If I had not already got too big for a Moth I would have gone for it, always wanted a scow as a teenager but sadly now at least four stone too heavy!

Re: Christmas Quiz Answers!

I demand a recount!

Sadly, I have checked my answers and I got two wrong! (Question 4, as well!)

Re: The ideal flat bottomed boat

I always liked the idea of a scow type moth, in some ways it was a shame that moths went so narrow, high tech and expensive. There was a number of interesting designs in the early seventies I wonder if there are any plans still about. I would be up for building something similar now for the fun of b...

Re: Oscillating Multi Tools?

Old Solo on the bay

An old Solo on the bay, looks ok in the pictures. If I hadn't got one I'd look at this.

From the sail number it was built/registered in 1962.

Re: Enterprise repair

I agree with Rupert, I used two coats of teak oil on our garden table it looked good when I had done it but after one winter the wood was black, I sanded it off and applied two coats of varnish, two winters later it looks ok but I will have to revarnish it next year as the wood is just starting to m...
