A furling code 1 type sail, so can go upwind in the really light stuff, and also tight reaching a little further up the range.


Sets in about 1knt of breeze and is a mean sail for drifting around in the middle of the night, Coastal or Tauranga spec. It's 0.5oz Nylon.


Been used about 5 or 6 times. Would suit a light, low righting moment boat, SR26 or similar.


Think the luff is around 12.5m, foot is about 8m? Have to measure it properly sorry. Furler not included.




Sail and furler sold

She been antifouled etc? Will there be a launching party? :wave:


I need to get her out of the shed to shoot the new waterline, so antifoul after that. Probably won't have enough money for a launch party ha ha! It will be tap water from a milk bottle over the bow at this rate!

I'm selling some winches to try and offset a portion of the $1000 I paid for the piedy and the subsequent $150 I've spent ripping her apart and taking most of her to the tip.


2 x Lewmar 7's - Pretty good condition. Easily the best thing on the boat when I bought her. Comes with a stainless bracket and portion of rotten deck still attached. $100ea


1 x Maxwell 16. - Reasonable condition $50.



There's also 1 x small bronze old school winch. But I've since taken a liking to it, so might keep it for novelty value. Unless someone really needs it to match another winch on a classic, then we can do a deal.

There's 4 pawls in a maxwell 16 I think, Hutton winches in Aus will pay $20au each for them. Now, if you could just find another 33,000 of them you'd be a millionaire and have your boat done in no time. You're selling some very cool stuff but like you I need to sell not buy. I would have bought the lewmar winches but I just bought some pawls from Aus for $40 each and fixed some old Maxwells. :crazy:

I’ve always got my eye out for cool stuff. Although that Vespa whilst looking very nice really was a heap of rubbish. It was 90cc but man it was just too slow. So slow, that riding it in any kind of traffic was a cold sweat ordeal. So I upgraded to a bicycle mainly for safety reasons. Still have one fridge, although they draw about 8kw. So I use it as a cupboard so as to not double my power bill.


I know the winch parts are really hard to get. The pawls are good in these winches, so I guess this will be a bargain for someone out there. I just don’t like bolting old gear back on what will a nicely done pretty well new boat. Makes a nice job look half ass.
