We have the latest Merlin Rocket hull shape from JOE RICHARDS which we are eager to build for someone. We will make the hull from 6mm ply, and put our carbon thwart and front tank arrangements in as like the 'Easy Roller' and do a custom one off carbon deck, any one interested in this exciting opportunity should contact Kevin direct at the Boatyard at Beer on 01297 23434

Well if that doesn't get someone excited, nothing will....

Can somebody give a summary of the thinking behind the new design ?

JOE RICHARDS himself perhaps?

What Kevin has not done is given any indication of where he is pitching thr boat's price either. A bit of marketing may be needed here!

I think we can assume that it is not going to be cheap but I am sure he will discuss that with anyone willing to have a serious chat about it. I should think a discount would be available to anyone who can make it go fast compared to a tailender like me!

Mr Archer, have you got some dosh for a bit of a Driver Experiment? I know you would love to!!

My money is on Mr Lee since 3660 has appeared on the for sale list ....

If it was in plastic ....

Sssh - Mrs Lee doesn't know about 3660 being on the market!  And no decisions made at this point, we'll just have to wait and see ;-)

Can't find any mention of or details of the new design on the, or am I missing something ?

I'm sure when a fellow Merlin sailor orders your 'Joe Richards' hull, they will be breaking the mode and help to continue to develop the class. Dave Lee has sold his boat, so this could be a good candidate and the Starcross fleet will gladly help him fit it out!!!!
