11+ GRP

Post by cweed » Thu Jan 03, 2019 3:29 pm

This topic is current under 'Swallows and Amazons', so have given it its' own heading..........

I checked my 1971 'Boat World Guide To Dinghies'.

The entry for the 11+ says: Construction 'Marine plywood or Glass reinforced plastic'.

The Class secretary's comments : 'The GRP version has a more modern layout,with buoyancy tanks running the full length of the cockpiy, the afterdeck being omitted.'

The only 'supplier' suggested is Dobsons Yacht and Boatbuilders, Derby.

Of more general interest, I see they have a lot of boats from the Thornhill collection for auction, what's the story there?

Finn K88 looks good.

Maybe start a separate thread on that if you want to generate a reply? Think your post will get lost in a thread about 11+ and more especially the fabled grp 11+!

Michael - nice looking hull, but presume that’s all there is. Different mast mounting to mine. My mast bottom has the original type which screw adjusts , and has a Male protrusion that swivels in the female fitting on the foredeck.
Can’t quite read the hull number if that’s what I’m seeing on the transom?
If anyone buys it, I have a Heron set up that would go well on to it.
