Keith,

Thank you...but the real thanks should go to the Finn and Moth sailors who provided all the source material.

Well...it is now down to the 'Mothists' of all the varying breeds, to build on this great start and get the classic lowrider moth scene airbourne.

All sorts of boats and all sorts of people are now talking about the classic moths - there is a real 'buzz' to the topic, so I hope that before long, there will be other Moth related articles.

As to the what next article wise...... restorations is right up there, Bosham.....Fairey boats..... 14s, 505s.... and lots more.

Hi David,

Have been encouraging someone at my club with a low rider in the garage to get involved... we'll see!

Enjoyed the pics of my boat, K60, but wished I'd thought to take my comedy hat off before you took that pick!

Cheers,
Keith

excellent article David.

<<< as the hull was anything but lightweight, with its metal centreplate, it was little wonder that the boat quickly got a reputation for being heavy when on land. >>>

tell me about it!

Not around here! I suspect I'm the only one sailing a dinghy out of here on a regular basis

For all you Moth sailors out there...a little tit bit that dropped into my inbox today....

Ian Ridge sailing his foam sandwich Aero back in 1986!

It just shows the level of interest existing out there in the world of moffs!
