This one . It’s a Shaw 750 T . The old mainsail was not made for the boat it is a 2nd hand one off animal biscuits which is a 750 sport . Old main has had a long life of probably 8-10 years at a guess and is totally rooted .

New sail in the pic was built at UK sails in Fongaray by Phizzle and probably some help from Wal too . Cloth is DP PX black line 20 I think ? Bit heavier than needed but it will last a good while in that weight 


Well thanks to 44forty, I've ended up with a new boat. Well, will have once I've figured it out how to get it from Queenstown to Whitianga. Things we do on lockdown.

This was finished on weds afternoon before the lockdown . It’s staying at the loft until I can pick up 😫 . Doing my head in , but at least I will have a very good reason to go sailing immediately the

There's only so many projects you can do with supply challenges.   I'm glad I started the replacement floor boards just before lockdown.  Almost done.

So this is my project, a Ross 490 that originally had a rotten floor. Most of the re-build was done late 2019, the wrap and prod is my ‘Covid Project’ - currently only have 200ml of epoxy left!94C4F4F1-EFCF-45DF-AEF2-FBCA860F1751.jpegFCB852CA-171E-46EA-9D20-9B45A32D3781.jpeg2CDE1F77-A700-4A74-8EAA-354A1C14FBAC.jpeg2B1A380C-4EBF-4174-85B6-98641A891787.jpeg8929248E-7D06-40EA-BFE7-F63A497C0093.jpeg3AD4FD0F-167D-4417-8B40-6F6D40E36A5A.jpeg

A tie to stop the middle of the mast from bouncing too far might be worthwhile

Safe travels

Good point. There's a supporting bracket on the centreboard gantry but it's not in place in the picture. I'll follow that up. Thanks
