Now that looks absolutely superb.  I hope it goes well at Kirklees but stay well away from the island!!

Seen this sailing this morning looks absoultly great on the water. Fellow club member went onto a steep leaning curve with
this but the end result was worth it. I wonder what he'll do next ....... O0

Hope the weather is favourable for Blunose next Sunday and look forward to seeing it sail at KMBC's open day.
It should be a good event with a promise of 18 clubs and 5 traders visiting. See you there.

How long is she? From the 22 lbs I am guessing about 4-5 feet at water line, but she is sitting in the water like a 6 plus boat.

Nearer to 5ft this is the builder with the launching lift he made to get the boat into the water.

Details of the launching lift and how it operates would be of great interst to me. I will be building a similar sized scale sail boat with a drop keel soon and will need such a device.

I am sure I am not the only one who would be interested.
