Re: Clywedog Rally 2020

As we would usually be camping I'm afraid we wouldn't be able to make Clywedog this year.

Go for it. At 6’4” and 17 stone I’m way too big for the MX-Ray, still bought it though!

New User Regisration

Once again we have had to suspend registration as it would appear that half of Russia want to join the forum and the bots have worked out the questions. I've just deleted 100s of new accounts, so if you've signed up in the last few weeks and haven't had a notification you'll have to rejoin when we s...

Re: Finn Wooden Mast Rigging

I set up the Classic Finn site when there was interest in Classic Finns and I still had a few Finns. I was told that the UK Finn Association would be hosting the Classic Finn content so I had to shut the site down. The Classic information never made it to the UK Finn Association site. However most o...

epoxy over G4

so, has anyone got experience of applying epoxy over G4?

A few years I completed the bow and stern tanks of Zenith and after reribbing applied a coat of G4 in both tanks. I'm pondering using the Jotun white epoxy primer in the tanks, but will it stick to G4?

Re: Zenith - Swedish B Class.

finally managed to pull together a load of my Zenith stuff and have managed to firm up some of her history as well as finding some new Sailing Canoe resources, including some lovely classic canoes.

New blog site has is all and should be the place for updates - http://pegasus18.com/zenith

If you put Bill in contact with me I'll do a better scan, rather than a quick iPhone pic!

Re: Zenith - Swedish B Class.

Here's the link to the Thorell material. https://digitaltmuseum.se/search/?aq=te ... thorell%22

I also have a nice article about his Sailing Canoes written by John Leather in an old Classic Boat. I'll send it to you later.

Re: Zenith - Swedish B Class.

Need to coordinate events, I’m not going up against one of your restorations in a concourse! One of the other projects I have is removing over 50 m^2 of Piranha pine ceiling (got to love 1970s interior design). It has been up for over 40 years and is in 15’ lengths and about 2.5” wide, I think it is...

Re: Classic Boat dec. 1989

I have a near complete run of Classic Boat.

They are in my workshop, I’ll go through them tomorrow. If I forget give me a nudge.
