Just finished building a Graupner Truebule very easy build seams to be quite a strong boat for wind speed upto force 3
Change the rigging and sheeting lines to dacron sea line apart from that built as standard
will be in the water next weekend

Hi Jim, thanks for the reply. Is Dacron a fishing line? I will be interested to hear how things go on the water.

Cheers, Terry.

My friend's Robbe Sirius has been sailed in winds gusting up to force 6.....

I have been told a True Blue builder that they will sail in more than the recommended wind speed... but you have to rebuild the sails and rig to do it and that they tend to "porpoise" on the standard rigging anyway.
