Re: What kind of i14 is this?

Looks like a Bieker 2 or 3. If it was built in 2001 then probably a Bieker 3.

Hull number may be engraved on the transom or near the daggerboard slot.

As for the mast being a CST 14, he's probably correct.

Somebody from England should have more info for you.

Tricky? Hmm, I don't know I've never sailed a boat with the trimming reversed :lol:

My boat was the last B3 built before Paul sent the molds to England (a bunch more were built there).

Re: 2000-2001 Bieker3 i14 as a first boat. Is it worth it?

As a first boat? Yes, excellent choice. She'll be faster than you for a while, how long depends on how much time you put into learning the boat. I bought my B3 new in 1999, she's still faster than I am :( at times faster than the new boats (not as often anymore though). It all comes down to cost, ho...

Re: Pre-war I-14, WHIRLY

Paul and Yvonne (Paul Galvez & YMGALVEZ) have two old 14s, a lapstrake and a hot molded one. They might have some info advise etc for you.

(I'll make sure they see your post).

Re: Rack Foam

There are lots of different materials on racks. Mostly rubber, I used to use a hard neoprene that was sold as a kit for some Hobie Cats, not sure what mine currently is, (came as about ½ meter square sheets), softer and grippier than the hard neoprene.

Maybe you are allergic to Latex?

Re: Boat in a box - the Shu3

Hmm, that's the way I write software and build small wood projects, hadn't thought of changing the design as you when building a boat! :D

Re: Future of the Forum

I think it would be great if we could link a lot of the other info out there (Facebook, website etc.) to the forum. Just how is out of my league :)

Maybe this isn't the best place to mention this, but we should work on getting i14.org back...

Re: Future of the Forum

I prefer the forums as I get email with new posts for threads I follow and can take a quick glance at my RSS reader to see if there are any new posts. Facebook is taking over the world, but it is hard to find historical stuff there. But not many folks post to the forums, and there is little effort t...

Re: Boat History US 814

Hopefully more info will be coming, in the meantime. The picture is definitely of an International 14, however the US 814 at the gold cup would not be a 14. The Gold Cup is the world championships for the Finn class, a single handed boat.

Re: Boat History GBR 1306

I don’t remember the length, but it does depend on how it is routed, the big difference is if you have a spinnaker/pole launch system or just a spinnaker launch system. If it is just a spinnaker launch, then twice the mast height, plus the distance to the back of the sock and forward to where the sp...
