Jack Holt Ideal Dinghy

Post by Aztec » Thu Oct 31, 2019 4:03 pm

We have finally completed the kit dating from 1978 found in a loft in Largs. It was the subject of a build and sail your own boat series on Ulster Tv. In the seventies, Largs on the Clyde received Tv via a relay cabled to each house. UTV was the best signal.
We had our first sail this week and I am pleased to say she handled very well and is a stable good load carrier.Responsive was a surprise ( and my last Dinghy was an A class Catamaran.)
The Gunter rig with reef makes her a great family boat. She also has rowlocks and the ability to take a small out board on the transom as the aft deck sits down about 6 in.
We are unsure of what to do with her now as we both have other boats to sail.
Would like to post some photos and video but not sure how.

if you send me your email via the email link in Contact at the right, I'll add you to a DropBox that you can load them to and I'll put them on the website.
