This in this week from Jeff, one of our Inverloch Irregulars . . . .
Gave 1870 a big workout on the weekend. Fast but she showed her age and so did I.
Could not get comfortable unless hiking out, my hips are not as flexible as they once were!
Pulled the rudder screws out of the transom (rot)
Glue joint in the mast failed, repairable.
Who knows what we used way back then.
Good to see Ken back on the water too.
So, some wintertime repair and restoration in store to be ready for the 2018 Inverloch Classic Wooden Dinghy Regatta then.
