I have today finally managed to remove all the grippy paint that was on the deck and she is now looking shiny!!  I am booking her in Monday to be refurbished (remove the knocks and knocks in the gel) I have now also tidied up the carbon tack tick bracket with blue anodised bolts as well as removing all the old tape and lacquered it with epoxy.

Rope ordering is commencing Monday!!!  Does anyone know if and how to splice proper swift cord (the one with no core)

F**k me, Russ. Have you ever thought about actually sailing the boat instead of beautifying it?

Ha cheers Neptune, Tie lights are no good for control lines, i did Harken on the last 3, so i am happy to stick with the ronstans for now!

 

Steve, i have only been doin it as the lake is frozen solid still!  If its not defrosted by Friday i will trawl the old girl up to Draycote for a blast.  Having said that it needs some TLC in terms of new rope and shockcord before it all works properly again!

It looks better in the flesh JImbo, i took the photo on a crap day with my phone.  I have to say it is not as pretty as the one i had made for the last 300.

Jimbo, they are a nightmare to get hold of and although look great would be a nightmare fit on a 3, Doug is making me some with elastic tabs and bits this will hopefully stop the age old problem of missing the toe straps!  The ones on the boat at the moment are falling to bits!

I find "cosmetic carbon" so amusing. A few years back, my current employer made black glass fibre for a customer during a carbon drought- all our carbon was going to customers who needed it for structural purposes. The customer still wanted the "carbon" look, and wanted more than could be achieved with a rubbish vinyl wrap.

On which- the RS100 foredeck would look better if RS were using something other than plain weave fabric for the visible skin. More complex weaves are more suited to shapes such as that- was looking at all the defects on the show models!

nice idea- get yourself a knackered 300, whack on a Vortex kite kit then
simply vinyl the foredeck with faux carbon.... wee hey, cheap alternative to
the RS100 and would probably go quicker in the right hands!

It would be unsailable i would think mate!

we spent all weekend sorting out the B14

a full progrip everything, including B14 logos in progrip,

a hull that is so fair and smooth that we haev no chance of standing on it in a cpasize

6 hours polishing work,

all the fitting staken off and redone,

i took all the rivets out of the racks and re did them all

new set of norths

we just need some more useless stuff, going to fit a stereo

we haev new ropes,

and our blonde bomshell rashies must be pimp
