McCartney Sunfish

Did anyone see the article in the Saturday Mail of 25th July about Paul McCarney sailing his Sunfish......?

The boat is called Linda, and there's also a decent colour photo!

Re: Finn Wooden Mast Rigging

Neil,

Thanks so much! Just what an amateur Finn fancier needs. Have bookmarked it for safety.!

Also, ent 228 I have the book and had forgotten what a great reference it is. Also 'Regatta Sailing' by Per Skjonberg of a similar era has some classic Finn related photos and wisdom.

Re: Finn Wooden Mast Rigging

While early Finns are being discussed, slightly off topic, but could someone give a link to where the very useful information I saw a few years ago on what I remember was a dedicated Classic Finn website, can now be found? I seem to remember there were boat lists with names and years as well as a sa...

Re: Finn Wooden Mast Rigging

Hi, all.

I see on Donie's photos of the Pearson that there are no floorboards. Have they gone to the decaying / awol or did Pearsons of this age not have floorboards originally?

(I saved K119 from the tip and made a floorboard..... and now wonder if I shouldn't have?)

Thanks!

Mirror Predecessor?

Saw this on Gumtree. https://www.gumtree.com/p/boats-kayaks-jet-skis/reduced-sailing-dinghy-boat-with-trailer/1335349303 It certainly has Mirror 'reflections'..... and the scalloped deck around the mast reminded me of the Miracles appearance. Does anyone know what the class was named / was it Holt a...
