Re: K220 - any details?

(A bit like getting a patient to roll around in a CT Scanner during a "Virtual Colonoscopy!") More than happy to take your word for this.... Paddles are useful, but not just for paddling. If you break your rudder and you can stick a paddle down the cassette hole, when rudderless sailing, your opini...

Re: Missing Archives ?

Bugga, just wrote a long answer to this.....and lost it into the ether. Struggling to find the energy to re-write it. So apologies for shorthand. Don't think the Sliding seats were ever put online since I designed the site in 2008/9. Think it is very unlikely that anything has been removed from the ...

Re: Thursday, a day for breakages

Sorry to miss the opportunity to say goodbye. I wondered where you had gone...but didn't hear...

I hope Barbara is back on her feet shortly.

Best wishes to you both.

Re: Mederka K36

No, can't say that I do. K4 Pampatha is about still I think. She was renovated back in around 2010 and is a Morgan Giles boat. It does interest me that both these boats show evidence I think to having been quite seriously modified during their sailing lives, which, lets face it remains typical in IC...

Re: Mederka K36

Thanks Michael. No idea how I missed that. A very interesting canoe. Aquamarine is K8 from 1913. Designed by Linton Hope and built by Hart Harden & Co. https://c1.staticflickr.com/5/4218/35024714834_7cc78584ff_o.jpg Built I think to the B class rules and certainly similiar to Neil Witt's Zenith K26,...

Re: Mederka K36

Thanks Jim for posting that... There is lots of action behind the scenes trying to save all of Andrew Thornhill's boats 'as a collection' or at least the I14s and a few other particularly interesting craft. But if Mederka really does go under the hammer, it would seem a great pity if we can't find s...

Re: A newbie

Re: Slurp Design The Slurp was designed by Martin Rosell in Sweden. 5 boats were designed, built and measured shortly before the one-design rule came into force in 1971. 4 of those boats have now been brought back to the UK by Tony Marston and have (or are being) modernised. The Slurps are one-desi...

What an interesting canoe....

Thickness of Mast step plate?

Hi all, I wonder if anyone could tell me what thickness of Aluminium is normally used for the mast-step plate used under the mast step for attaching blocks etc. By memory I would say 2.5-3mm, but didnt' get to the club yesterday, when I was hoping to measure the one I have, which was made by Razorba...
