    Moth boat work: how much and what kind?

    Currently sail a Musto Skiff...can't be any harder to launch than that. Moths look more like windsurfers to launch.

    Moth boat work: how much and what kind?

    That's really interesting  That's really interesting. I didn't realise that a new foil had been developed and I'm sure it does make all the difference. Yeah there are four yacht clubs (note I didn't say sailing clubs) in my local harbour where the good and great of Ireland's aristocracy like to...

    Moth boat work: how much and what kind?

    Moth boat work: how much and what kind?

    Thanks - that's pretty definitive. I've sailed a Waszp in Minorca Sailing and, while the foiling was great, I wasn't impressed by the boat itself. I've got an IQ foil windsurfing set up.

    Moth boat work: how much and what kind?

    I've caught the bug after spending a year windfoiling and am contemplating taking the plunge. I'm pretty rubbish at boat work, however. What tends to break on moths and how much boat work does it take to keep one on the water? I'd be looking at spending around 12k euro.
