Dave Winder from Winder boats has informed us that National Solo 6000 is now being fitted out ready for display at the RYA Suzuki Dinghy Show 5-6th March.
The two tone FRP hull will be fitted out to the highest standard with Harken fittings, Selden Spars, HD Gold Sail, Creation Covers and hiking straps and Chris Brown Combination Trailers.
Recent developments to the Winder hull include an improved deck/floor moulding which means no join and as such, no weak point or leaking.
Moulded from epoxy foam sandwich the hull is very light yet enormously stiff. They are jig-assembled in the mould to ensure accuracy and consistency and the hand-layed epoxy is done by the same skilled team who have been building Merlins for years. The decks are resin infused and all the hulls are post-cured which ensures rigidity across a wide temperature range.
Foils are moulded for absolute consistency of shape and stiffness, the moulds being taken from master plugs made with all our extensive foil making experience.
Solo 6000 comes with the following:
Harken fittings, Kicker, outhaul, cunningham all continuous, Creation Padded toe straps cleated near the thwart, Traveller with cleats on the car, Continuous traveller with micro car and Xtreme angle fairleads.
Many thanks to Dave and the team at Winder Boats and also to HD Sails, Selden, Harken, Creation Covers and Chris Brown Trailers and Noble Marine for their generosity in supporting the N.S.C.A. and National Solo 6000.
HD Sails "Gold" laminate Sail will be on Solo 6000
See you and it at the show.
