after the event I know, but I did say Tempo Scow when I saw it.  I have been tempted by one in the past.

Get it on the water, come join us at the cvrda, and bring it to our nationals at Hunts at the end of August.  I for one would love to see it out.
the same, but different...

I like it.
Well worth 30 quid (for materials) of anyone's money.
Probably get a new set of sails for a tenner.

Strangely, just found an article about it in a book I just got from eBay - the Dinghy Year Book 1965!

I wondered why the baseball kept getting bigger. Then it hit me.

Designed by the father of the Sonatina designer hence the similarity.




Bingo!
Needs to sail more...

The sails are missing, (I'm on the look out for a set) so i'm unable to go down that route.

Just had a chat with my dad about about what ideas you guys have come up with, he doesn't seem to think the design is a home build, he said the design is to intricate.
 
I'll pop down tomorrow and take a few closer picures and measure it up properly and post them.
 
Thanks for your help on this
