    Show your dingy sailing....

    Cool video Michael. And it is interesting to see that power cat race committee boat we built for JSC what, like 40 years ago at the end of the video?

    No, all I have are keelboats now. I'm not really sure why that has happened.

    A reinforced hole in the center of the seat works. Just make sure the edges are rounded. Some people tie a stopper knot at the right place. I use a small clam cleat.

    My carriage has a recess that the retainer line can travel happily in. Maybe you need to get out your recess making tool.

    Square top and plastic mast track

    Didn't see if this got answered. Composite Engineering in MA (US) somewhere.

    Old Guy Wanting to Dinghy Sail

    A little off topic but a friend of mine sailed his OK from Vancouver to Seattle in the '60s. He'd pull it up onto the beach at night and set up camp. FWIW my last OK (1975) was glass. Megabyte seems worth a look. Maybe contact West Coast Sailing in Portland if you don't mind looking south of the border for a boat.

    No, I still have it. Maybe it's the color...

    Moth for sale

    We're back! My Moth buyer has let prudence get the better of him and now realizes that his fledgling business needs all of his attention , time and money. So my Moth is back on the market. Still for the give away price of $4,500. You can't buy the materials for that. I'm not sure but I don't think you can even buy a Mach2 main foil for that.

    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.

    Moth for sale

    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.

    Moth for sale

    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.
