Merlin Rocket at Baltic Wharf

Post by PeterV » Sun Oct 09, 2016 12:22 pm

Ive had the following message from Baltic Wharf sailing club ( in Bristol)
we have an old Merlin Rocket at the club which has been left
behind by an elderly ex member, no longer in good health. He no longer
wants it so the club may dispose of it.

It is wooden, sitting on a road trailer, with a decent cover, sails in
bags inside although they were stored indoors for most of its life,
aluminium mast.

It doesn't look to be in bad condition generally and looks nice and
dry and solid inside but could do with a little TLC. We believe it is sail able.

If anyone's interested I can let you have contact details. I'm not sure of the number, I was told 8391, would 3391 be likely? but the sails were measured in 1981.

3391 would make it a 1986 Morrison designed NSM2 called Dissident built by Bob Hoare

2391 would be a Superstition [wide] designed by M Jackson called Hot stuff and dating from around 1970 [more likely if the sails are dated to 81]

Then I think it's probably best to ignore the sail number, presume it's 1981 or earlier and go and have a look if you're interested!
