British Moth

Post by hall_g » Mon Aug 22, 2016 7:59 pm

There is some interest at my local club (Rickmansworth) in British Moths and I am keen to help get a fleet going. If you have an old British Moth around the £300 mark, ideally not too far away and perhaps needing some TLC, then please do message me. I have also posted on BMBA website and am keeping an eye on the Bay. Many thanks as ever.

I suspect the one in my sig may be a bigger project than you want to consider...

I'm afraid it does look at bit too much of a project for me - but thanks for suggesting it!

I have one that is probably better sold than hanging on to it.

Its at Whitefriars SC on the Wiltshire/Gloucester border (A419). Built in 1962.

Best of British (BoB).

Cheap boat, will be fine with a bit of fetling over the winter. Unused all year.

Includes a cover and a launching trolley. Good sail.

Hi Steve, sounds good. Do you have any photographs you could send me on hall_g@habsboys.org.uk please? Is the hull all ok? Many thanks, Gavin

Its slightly dejected after having been ignored all year, but is solid with no rot.

However, I will get the cover off it this weekend, chase the spiders out of it, give it a wash and have a sail in it.

I will get some pictures to you, when I get home.

We put a decent mast on it a couple years ago and it came with a decent sail. The cover is functional, but not perfect. My son bought some new nicknacks ( halyards, etc) for it this year but has yet to fit them. I have a choice of trolleys, a light weight fold-able one, and another that needs a little adjustment to make the boat sit more neatly on it. Either one - as is.

Its a running restoration, a goer but in need of tidying/cleaning. I.e. something you can make your mark on.

Cheers

Hi Steve, Love it - looks just the job, what figure did you have in mind? Many thanks, Gavin

In the ball park of the figure you mentioned above, certainly not more.

Best you come and see it and we can arrive at a figure we are both happy with.

Cheers

OK great - which weekend day suits you best? Possibility I could come over sometime this weekend, but more likely next weekend if that would be OK.

This weekend or next is fine with me - you have my number. Evenings is best.

You will need a trailer if you want to take it away, unless you have the where-withal to put it on the car roof.

Thanks again - possibility I could come over this Saturday late afternoon (tomorrow), but more likely a week on Sunday if that's OK. I've got a decent road base and the means to lash a trailer to it. Will give you a call to arrange. All Best, Gavin

Got your message. Catch you next week.

Gave it a bit of scrub.

Needs a bit of tlc though. Abit of varnish and paint should be all though.

Cheers

BM 459 is now in my garage awaiting some TLC, many thanks to Steve and the CVRDA forum. Still interested in buying more Moths - it's becoming a bit of an obsession.
