I am a new member of the association and my brother and I have recently purchased two solos. We are relatively new to sailing (3 years) so please bear this in mind when responding. we sail off the south coast at sea.
The dinghies are also a bit "vintage" - sail numbers 1884 and 3810. 1884 has a grp hull and wooden deck, 3810 is all wood.
Neither boat has an uphaul/downhall system for the centreboard (both are wooden).
Has anyone any photos/diagrams to show a simple roping system for the centreboard. I presume that a gearing system my be useful to reduce effort.
Any help would be much appreciated.
Also, what mast float would you recommend - I have already turtled it once!
I look forward to your comments
