There are many moth sailors that take things just that little bit too seriously, but I'm always here to help balance things out.

It has been a long time since the last update due to all this cold weather hampering progress. However, the boat now has its final skin. It's something a little bit different to provoke some discussion.

The fit-out has begun with all the glorious goodies from Allen Brothers, Allspars and Kingfisher Yacht Ropes starting to find their way onto the hull. 90% of it will be well hidden away from the elements.

Soon, it will be time to get the rig in the air and start to see the final look of this little weapon. It's all getting very exciting!

Thank you to the continued help and support from:

  • Allen Brothers
  • Kingfisher Yacht Rope
  • Atomik UK High Performance Sailing
  • Easy Composites
