1973 Int Moth 3517 (Skol iii) (Sold)

"Unskol" aka "Fred", Int Moth 3517, is a Glass fibre (coremat) Rondar Skol Mk3 above the waterline, and has a cold moulded hull below the waterline. It seems to have been like that from the beginning.

The bottom was replaced in 2014, and the hull professionally painted, so its all in good order and sailed regularly up to this last season. Orange decks (original gel coat) and navy blue hull (paint over black gel coat topside and wooden bottom). The hullshape U section at the bow, merging to a flat floor aft.

The Rig is a Mag5 era Needlespar/Sanders setup, but there's also a complete low aspect soft sail rig, but it would need a mast step change to be used. I also have a kit for a carbon spar. comprising a pre himodulus mast from a foiler, lengths of mast track and some carbon tube to extend to the right length.

I'm having trouble sailing at the moment, so the boat is available.

Basically the boat could be considered to be not unlike a Europe, but with a good deal less rocker and a much more modern rig with reasonable headroom. Particularly quick in drifting conditions for some reason, where Lasers are easily overtaken even with my excess weight on board.

Here's an album of the rebuild.

There's no road trailer, just a rather tired trolley, but with a decent cradle.
New breathable cover a few years ago,

Price is a bit tricky. It depends on whether you want the carbon mast kit too. Very negortiable really. Obviously far more money has been spent on the boat than could ever be returned. If you're interested give an offer that makes me think you are serious about the boat. I don't want to sell for zero money to someone who will just dump it in a corner. May as well keep her in that case.

Unskol is still available. If you fancy doing Bowmoor she's ready to go.

Here's an interesting thing. Unskol was rigged in the front yard over the weekend, and while I was at it I retrieved the rig she came with from the garage roof. I had assumed it was an old style low aspect ratio rig, but in fact its not. Its the standard luff length, but with a long boom and soft sails. Two of them in fact., one Anderson and one I think Banks. So that's in an interesting transition point in Moth history. Yours for 20 quid, no rigging and no spreader (not sure where the spreader has gone!).
