The new RMW 14 that was recently on display had a compression strut running from the shroud attachment on the racks to the mast step to stop that lever arm.[/quote]

The 14 on display was a B5 owned by Rob Greenhalgh.

Good luck with the project, looking good.

P.S. I have some used foils if needed.

I am planning to do the Worlds although I note the date for the individuals do not end till the following Sunday 20th.
So no chance of bringing those forward a day so we can get the ferry back on Sunday for work on Monday?
No chance of first race after the prectice race? and finish up on the Saturday?

One option would be to get some Aussies to purchase some Musto Skiffs, we have allready sent one container out this year.
Split the cost with them.
Contact Jason Beebe in Aus.

Why not sling it in the roof of the 20' container?
There would be room to tie the road base and maybe the trolly to sides.
If not you could sling them at an oposing angle to the boat.
Fit your mast in the 40' box and you are away!

Get a freight forwader to sort a 20' container, you should be able to split your mast. Your road base will need a certificate of conformity this is very important! You can load all your personal gear in the container also. When Bunny left for Aus, I helped him load his car which he simply drove in t...

Here's my 2p. The price has gone up significantly and in my opinion it does not need to be so expensive. What makes it expensive is lots of small builders building too few boats. Look at the RMW 11's or 12's these were priced according to units sold, its the same when I built all the B2's B3's. My B...
