It is impressive how fast you are getting the wolf sorted Miles. Clearly you have far to much time on your hands!\r\n\r\nNote to self: Buy a caravan site!

"Build one...!\r\n\r\nYou have the skills after that mast repair mate... But of metal drain pipe about three metres long... Laminate, vac bag it and bake it.."

I'll post photos on FB of the building my boom. Just running some numbers through a composite engineer mate at the moment.

"Damn, you really are racing ahead of me...! I'm away for the rest of the week.\r\n\r\nWhen are you going to splash the wolf?"

Emailed this to go on 'items wanted' but it's no there yet.\r\n \r\nSteppenwolf needs a boom. Anyone have an old carbon boom going cheap that they no longer need? Doesn't have to be in one piece.\r\n\r\nThanks in advance\r\nMIles

"Thanks for the faith in my new found skills Gareth, I do think a complete boom is a bit of a leap though, and expensive if I get it wrong. I did after all, for the mast repairs, have the benefit of a tutorial and online advice from the Master Mast Builder himself Mr Chipstow. Have to say, Mr Chipstow knows how.\r\n\r\nSo if anyone does have and old unwanted or broken carbon boom, I'm interested."

"Thanks to the generosity of a fellow Merliner, Steppenwolf is now with boom.\r\n\r\nThank you."

When is the wolf getting wet? Well I did say to Dougal he can have a test the mast and sail her before Dinghy Week if she's ready (and if she's got M10 bolts fitted). You never know the wolf might be available that week for the event.
