Re: Finn Wooden Mast Rigging

Apologies folks but I hadn’t looked at the thread in a few weeks. My wooden Finn mast and boom has a wooden wedge to fit into the mortise somewhere. It came with the mainsail so once we are out of lockdown I will investigate further. There were no floorboards in the boat when I got it but there are ...

If you have any photos showing your setup for the kicker and the general rigging around the gooseneck of a wooden mast, I would...

Re: Vintage Finn

So I am the new custodian of IR10, thanks to Derek for offering it up and not scrapping it. I'm looking forward to getting her restored and out on the water again. I'd love to know some of the history if anyone knows the background to this old Finn. Is there a register/archive of old boats available...
