Varnish removal

The varnish on the Ghost is very thin, in fact almost non existent in parts. Given the loveliness of the veneers beneath is there a best way to remove the old stuff ready for new, more protective coats?

Re: Clywedog Rally 2020

We aren’t sure yet. I’m keen to come but we have no loo facilities in our little van. I guess if you go ahead we can always buy a portaloo and little loo tent!

Nymph

Not me, I cannot claim to be sylph-like. But I am tempted by the Blandford Nymph for sale for £50, my concern is that at 86kg I am far too heavy for it. Views?

Re: More lost classes??

I’ve been wondering about my Laser 2. No longer in production, I think the CA is defunct. Would it count? I have no wish to race it myself, but there are plenty still about.

Re: Vintage International 14 Rall

Hi chaps, please do consider bringing your boats to the Hunts Rally on 9th and 10th May. It’s close enough to Grafham to be near enough for both of you. It can be kinder to old boats than Grafham as it’s less exposed, and it’s always a friendly, well attended vent. If I can get Agamemnon ready in ti...

Re: It says it's a moth.....

This is interesting. The rolled decks on The Peril are coming away from the hull, and this information on their constructive makes me think that the repair is one for an expert and not for me.

Re: Baltic Wharf 2nd November

It looks like I can come to this as I have got some work in Bristol the day before. Whether I sail the OK or the Finn depends on what others are sailing!

I can’t find an entry fee or meal ticket price anywhere?

This makes my ‘which boat to take’ debate even tougher.

Re: Hunts CVRDA Open

Thanks Ian. It was good to see everyone again despite the tough conditions. Respect to those who stayed in campers! I think the thing that pleased me the most was to see Geoff in the other Finn out sailing for the first time. We rescued that Finn from Attenborough and Geoff has done a great job of p...

Re: Clywedog ~Rally 24th - 27th May

I’m hoping to arrive on the Friday, either with the OK or the Finn, small camper plus small awning please. Nikky isn’t coming until Sunday, dogs coming the whole time. I would hope to leave on the Tuesday, though since I am unexpectedly unemployed over half term maybe I will stay longer....

Re: Classic Finn Travellers 2019

I can’t go to Bosham - working. I could possibly come to Clywedog if I can find a dog minder - Nikky is at a wedding. I will bring the Finn to Roadford if it is good Finn weather for me, otherwise happy to bring it for someone else. Oxford is possible but will be weather and work dependent. I rejoin...
