Re: de-bodging an Osprey centreboard case - advice req'd

Can you sheet an osprey off the boom? Gets round the whole centreboard case problem with the addition of an aft bridle. I thought I'd hate it on the laser 2 but it's a real improvement, so much more room in the middle of the boat.......

Re: A £50 OK Dinghy?

I'm sure that I have seen an OK with that sort of cast aluminium mast gate in a thread on Sailing Anarchy. I think it's the "Craig list finds one", but the search function will only allow you to search for words with 3 of more letters so OK is out.....

Merlin 3270

Hi all,

just been given MR 3270. It's in a barn in South Devon and will need extracting, however I've looked at the MR website and can't find a link to a list of sail numbers to identify the design. Am I just missing it?

Thanks

Re: Jaw dropping..in a couple of ways!

Lovely and can someone help me out with the fourth picture of the plate partially dropped?

Rather nice picture, all well reefed.

Re: Letters to Santa...

I've just brought my Christmas presents:

Good condition Laser Surfsprint and a Sailboard Vario, the joy of being into old boards. Paid for by a trip around IKEA in Bristol..........

I'm really looking forwards to playing with them in the spring.
