Re: Classic Int 14 rudder

Hi,
I have an old wood Laser daggerboard in the loft, it is slightly deformed but you could probably get a rudder blade out of it!

Re: MOGO

I thought you had already in effect purchased the boat, do they really want more cash for the leftovers?. I can probably pop in one eve or around new year depending on when there is someone around, who have you been in touch with?

Re: Int 14 spars

Hi,
that mast looks solid enough to me, a vigorous clean off with a cream cleaner and an rough faced foam washing up pad will improve its appearance no end

Re: the best dinghy from plans

Hi,
with the Heron you also have the option of the traditional or stitch and glue versions. You can buy a kit but they are about £1200. Come and join us in the UKHBBR for home boatbuilding advice

Re: Any Wikipedia-authors out there?

Hi,
I was coauthor of the Wikipedia Mermaid dinghy page, coming up with text was not too hard but there is a lot of tricky formatting to get through!

Re: A couple of Mirror problems

Hi Peter,
I can probably find you a bit of spare ply if you need it and probably a second hand hatch as well, all extras from my Heron project!
