Newbie 2506 history and advice needed please.
Hi, just wondering if there is any history surrounding this boat. It was built by Wyche and Coppock in the early 70s and I think its a Nokes Moon Rocket number 2506 but not too sure. I have taken her out quite a few times and she is quick in light winds and accelerates well. Unfortunately, she is also slow in the tack, any advice out there to help her turn more quickly much appreciated. Thanks
If she is 2506 she was originally called 'Dishy'. She is a Moon Rocket designed by Mike Nokes and was probably built in 1971 by Wyche and Coppock in Nottingham.
The later year books show no further ownership information so she seems to have been a one club boat for at least 25 years!
Thanks everyone, I got the boat from JF Pardon and she is still named Dishy. She is in remarkable condition for her age. She could probably do with some new sails, her current ones are circa 1982 vintage. She is being sailed at Thornton Steward in N York now.
Still on the for sale list .....
I know, e-mailed already to have it removed but no joy.
Just seen this. I have removed 2506 from the list.
Much appreciated, thanks.
