Re: Penny / OD

since I'll be up in the loft looking for harnesses tonight, I'll see if I can find the picture I took.. pre digital camera days and show you what you have. I suspect there was a hunk of plywood imbedded in the floor under the main sheet block that got water logged. Let me see what I can find. Is you...

Re: Penny / OD

I tore my OD apart one very cold Feb morning (-36C) with a very wide pry bar. It came apart easy in four chunks, floor, floor support, foredeck and hull. The cold allowed the old compound to just come apart.like peanut brittle I had a big gash in my hull so I was obligated to rip her apart, not some...

Re: WANTED: Used main for Penny 14

Sry for late reply to your PM. I'll try and dig out that OD 14 sail and get some measurements/piccys for you in the next few days. Just PM me your email address and I'll wing off the pictures to you. It was for the grand prix twin trap version of the OD, so its probably big enough for your requireme...

Re: Looking for OD14 sails

I think I have an old OD 14 GP main sail in my loft. I just had a new bolt rope put on it before I found a kevlar main for my boat. Its not new nor crisp, but I seem to remember it wasn't a bad sail, held air and didn't have any holes in it when last I looked at it 5 yrs ago. Its stored in a climate...

slightly off topic.. Musto Skiff wanted.

I know someone who is looking for a Musto Skiff in NA, but he is also looking in the UK due to none being available over here. Anyone know of one for sale, and are there any sea cans of 14's with any spare room coming over to NA from the UK in the winter/spring?
Thanks
Dave

Re: worth buying this 'penny'?

A utility trailer will do and you won't need the spinny and bowsprit for your first little bit IMHO. You will be way too busy swimming, er ah I mean sailing with jib and main for the first bit.. I still do, I have no shame, I have a bad crew ;) You can prolly find a carbon fiber tube or aluminum pol...

Re: worth buying this 'penny'?

Spike had the same separation issues. One cold Canadian winter's day (-26C) I got tired of looking at the split seams and took a wide pry bar and broke the inner and outer hulls apart. Since it was so cold the bedding compound just popped apart with great ease. I also had a big hole in the bottom fr...
