Re: Used boat: Missing Hull Number, Serial # Correlates?

Hi The two boats listed were built in June and July 2010 :D If you have the CIN code, I can tell you when it was built. The sail number doesn't necessarily align with the date built. When you say the sticker is missing, is it the blue and white World Sailing sticker or the silver Ovington Boats stic...

Re: MUSTO CHALLENGE

Are you allowed to have a support boat carrying a defibrillator :?:

Seems to me that you are going to start the competition.

I expect it is quite difficult as your boat speed drops off and the loads increase but that's what a challenge is :!:

Re: Boats for regattas for foreign visitors

John

It is certainly worth a discussion, although of course the most important point is having a completely clear understanding of the insurance obligations.

How are boats in Switzerland insured?

Re: New Pole end

Hopefully by removing the sheave (which has metal edges and one of the existing screws) will mean we'll have a product with less likelihood to snag.

The end fitting is made from delrin and due to its self lubricating nature cannot readily be fixed with a glue.

Class rule official interpretation 4 - rule C.6.1.3 (v)

Rule C.6.1.3 (v) the main halyard may be tied to the top of the mast using any knot, loop and existing holes.

The class IM confirms that the rope loop solution first used by Justo Martinez as here http://www.mustoskiff.com/pimp-my-skiff ... tting.html is compliant with the rule.

Re: Olympic Musto Skiff?

Hi Aaron An interesting topic. As I understand it, the only available event that the Musto Skiff could be considered for would be the women's class in the mixed single-handed event (the Finn being retained). That said, between now and the November conference the relevant different World Sailing comm...

Re: Proposed new spinnaker pole outer end fitting

Hi Since the new pole outer end fitting is accepted for 2018, is the new fitting already available? Ovington Boats will have stock in the next few weeks Did someone already mount it? It has been on test with one boat since the summer :D And, that aside, is the old one still allowed? Yes, both are cl...
