French Moth

Post by Alan P. » Thu May 09, 2019 5:13 pm

Came across this ad whilst browsing Leboncoin. Almost a national pastime here although I have recently sold my mk3 Gull and a kayak through it.
To my non Moth eyes this boat appears to be old and quite unlike anything I can recall seeing in the Uk. It comes with a wooden mast and boom.
I must stress that I am definitely only looking but I'd be interested to know what the CVRDA Moth fraternity make of it.

Thanks for sharing this Alan, I suspect Dougal will be interested because it looks very much like the Westell designed 505 type moth or similar. I have posted it on the lowriders facebook page in case anyone can add more info.
