    White racing finish - no antifoul?

    Interprotect 2000 barrier coat followed by VC performance epoxy, white, hard finish with Teflon, great stuff, have used on many boats, only con is antifouling paints do not adhere to it, has to be removed if you want to paint bottom at a later date.

    Upgrade from Merit 22 to S2 7.9, worth it?

    If you look at the 7.9 check the hull well, they are balsa core below the waterline, I have replaced the core in a couple, expensive job.

    Vic Carpenter Boats

    I wondered where Spad had gone, I thought it was in Thornbury, The original mast was lost, so I understand, It would be great to have a Carpenter reunion at the Invitational, need to track down Gleek now.

    Is that Carpenter as in Vic Carpenter ? Not sure about the first name. Yes, Vic Carpenter.

    Interesting boat, the builder must have cursed the designer with all these curves around the bow! I love cold moulded boats, light strong, beautiful, environmentally friendly, it is a shame that there is so much labour involved in building them! In this case the designer, Vic Carpenter is also the builder.
