Yep I remember the Plymouth Q very well. Having seen the forecast I thought we couldn't possibly race and hit Destiny's very hard... How wrong I was!

Yup, that's a no-brainer: second hand cherub. Get a reasonably well build one from the 90's and you can single or twin wire it.

Fly Cherub!

You sound like a decent weight for a Merlin Helm.

There are some very cheap ones on the New Merlin website.... Perfect for the string Fetishist on a low budget.
