Jon, what is the next open you are going to?

Don't know Alan, retired yesterday due to kicker breaking out of the bottom of the king post. If I get out of work tonight I'll go and take a look but I'm hoping I can sort it out this week. That was one hell of a beat back down the pond with no kicker I can tell you.

Bourne end the river champs, weymouth and haylingd island, are all coming up, they should be good practise for you.

Nice photos, just one note which would be just as easy if I found the rules, when did we stop having to have sail numbers on spinakers? Please bear in mind I've been dorment dinghy wise from the mid 90's to a year or so back! Barry.

From what i remember the change in the size rule coincided with the requirement for number being removed.

Good news folks - Boat not terminal and the crew/accountant has given a green light for Weymouth!

Both the new measurement procedures and the removal of the requirement for sail numbers on spinnakers were agreed at the 2002 AGM if memory serves, Barry. Jon, your part is a SuperSpar boom inboard end fitting 43-ISP-27 from the Speed Sails catalogue but with 3 holes drilled in it that have contributed to it's demise

Cheers both, that was very easy indeed!

Andrew,Jon thanks for that, I just didn,t pick up on that part of the rule but It'll certainly save me getting the pen to this years kite! Cheers Barry.

Grrrr, ssailboats haven't got one, P&B tell me that superspars "have never done a square spigot" - "yes they have - I've got one !!!!!!"

Looks as though one of the three holes in it has saved it from total destruction by stopping the crack.

Stop press - in the interests of fairness P&B were correct about the fact that they don't make them but the nice chaps at Superspars have said they've got one that P&B can sell me.

I guess you have ordered it by now, Otherwise I may go down the garden tonight and pull one off an old boom and post it up on e-bay! Let me know.
