    BASIL ?

    Yes, it certainly looks like an EC12. The basic sail measurements, foot, luff and leech comply with the rules.

    Thanks for that Brad, very interesting. It's given me something to look into. Pics of my maiden voyage.

    Had my maiden sail with her on Tuesday. Pleasantly surprised. Quite manoeuverable and pleasant to sail. The wind was mostly light and I can see it might be a handful in a blow. When I was setting the sails i realised there was no jib uphaul. That will add a knot or two when I fit it!. The jib sheet caught on the deck switch and turned off the radio! It went round and round in little circles and I had to row after it. I had a look at the 6M rules and they are rather daunting. They loved that sort of stuff in those days.

    I'm going to race it in our club's handicap races. There are no 6M clubs near Reading and I would have to go through the nause of having it measured and probably get new sails as the existing ones are not panelled. Can I be sure it is a 6M? The hull with no rig, ready to sail, weighs 8.2 kg. I'm guessing that it's not very manoeuverable with the rudder on the end of the keel? Thanks for all the gen., all this info is very interesting.

    I'm afraid not. Nothing on the sails either. It doesn't give the impression of being that old really. The hull is in very good condition with hardly a mark on it except paint scratches from the stand. Forward of the mast , on the bottom of the hull,inside, is a metal clip; presumably for a third servo.

    The hull is chopped strand fibreglass and it looks as if the bulb has been filled with molten lead! It has a Whirlwind winch and Futaba rudder servo, both working.

    I bought this at auction a few days ago, almost by accident! As I was leaving a chap told me it is a 6M by Tony Abel, from the 1980s. It's name is Basil. The auction catalogue said the 1970s. Can anyone confirm the above or have any more info, Thanks, John.
