    Moth for sale

    Wow, you know more about this boat than I do! It kind of makes me want to hang on to it. FWIW I designed those foils. I was pleased with the flap hinge which is an S-glass/G-flex laminate flush with the top surface. Monofilm wiper on the bottom. The foils seem to be strong too, so that's two good things about them.

    More Fish Class I'm thinking.

    That's the idea, but with a sloop rig. One rudder will do I think.

    Probably not Martin. Whose got time for that shit? Anyway it's not like that Moth was wildly innovative, or, with me driving anyway, competitive.

    I was inspired by the really nice little daysailers of the US northeast when I was out there last year sailing with the IC brothers. It will be something in the traditional line. Herreshoff like, but "improved" with a lifting bulb and modernish rig.

    A 23' cedar and carbon daysailer, with, oh god, 400 pounds of lead.

    What's wrong with the color? Sadly, I'm just getting too slow and clumsy. That and swimming in the cold water here is losing it's appeal. I really don't know what I'd do to make a fast Moth. Copy the best ones I suppose. The good ones are so very good. Or I'd at least not try to design my own foils. But where's the fun in that?

    I think you are right on both counts. Also, in the US at least, you can pretty much count on one hand the number of potential buyers for a non race winning development class boat. Not too many out there who have the skills and desire to keep such a craft functioning, AND the skills to sail it.

    You could up until a couple of hours ago. Now you can't

    Please check out my ad: http://sailinganarchy.com/classifieds/show-ad/?id=3712 It may not be the fastest Moth in the world but it's probably faster than anything else where you sail. And damn, it looks good. Stop being such a candy ass and go rip it up. $4,500. Look even old guys can sail it. (Thierry Martinez took this photo)

    IC needs ride

    I am looking for a ride for an International Canoe, sailing/camping gear, and tool boxes from Rhode Island to the West Coast, preferably the NW. Anyone coming this way with trailer or rooftop space?

    See the posts starting at #334, page 34 on this thread for a discussion about building an IC from flat carbon/foam panels.

    The concave top has been tried. It seems like it could be a good thing for keeping you attached to the seat. Arne Stahl's boat has it and I believe the new Morrison 3 does too. The curved bottom will get sucked down whenever it hits the water. Maybe you could incorporate a planing step? Or just don't let it touch down.

    Chris got any larger/better pics of this set up? Sorry B. I couldn't find any.
