  17. Well if you have, go to the link below and have a go at the rules quiz with boats that actually move and incidents that really happen in every event you enter. https://birkenheadrspc.co.uk/ Just scroll down and you cannot miss it.
  18. If I remember aright, Steve had a conundrum with his Porsche on one sailing trip. I believe that he had a puncture and had to put on the skinny emergency tyre, then found that the fat road wheel would not fit into the available space occupied by the spare. Rest of the car full of boat. What do you do ?
  19. Just catching up on my reading and spotted the comment about steering rack prices: just how many steering racks does one car need during its life? I would have thought - just the one it came with, surely they are like dogs - for life! Sixes last a lot longer! A Six would go in the car pictured. Removable lead on the passenger floor: hull bow first in the passenger area; mast and boom assembly between the head restraints (might need a hole in the rear window of the hood); sails in a short tube of soil pipe; radio gear in the luggage box; skipper in the driving seat and you're ready

  23. Well done John, great read, thanks. Lets hope there is not another lockdown and you can get all those ideas on the water racing.
  24. During the UK lockdown period and running parallel with our 'Matrix' A - Class Building Blog at the time, I produced a short piece of creative writing which was to be published within the Yachts & Yachting website. Unfortunately, the work was shelved and never published. Recently, with the introduction of another A - Class face book page, I have decided to share this piece of work, for those who may find some use within their interest for A - Class yachts. Constructive feedback would be appreciated. Regards JT Innovation of Design and Construction for A Class yachts.p
  25. We have used knitted bow bumpers on a number of our restored vintage yachts (usually made by my wife). I think it would work quite well on our A class, particularly with a small sponge rubber ball underneath, partially impaled on the point of the bow. However, as you say, it probably won't be strictly in accordance with the latest class rules We have found that a length of hook type Velcro stuck on the stem is quite effective at stopping the knitted bumpers riding up or down the stem. It is not necessary to have a piece of loop Velcro on the bumper, the hook type alone will grip it.
  26. You could always add a knitted bow bumper which might not be accepted by modern class rules but provides at least some protection. It really needs to be fixed well in place such that it does not get pushed out of the way. You can find them on ebay and model shops. It has a quite nice vintage look which does not ruin entirely the look of a Vintage yacht
  27. Accidents happen & most vane sailors accept this with good grace & there are always lots of people happy to help repair. I'm sure that we'd all be happy to see a few vintage boats racing in the centenary A week (2023) and I for one wouldn't mind if the forward most part of the hull was not "elastomeric"!! Good luck with your build & hope we'll see you at classic & vintage Marbleheads next year. Derek
