General National 12 chat / Rig tension and T-Foils
« Last post by PDavis85 on April 18, 2021, 09:09:52 PM »

Iíve recently taken ownership of 3470, Recidivist.

Just wondering is there is a ball park for rig tension people are running?

Also, T-Foils, are they worth it?

I am planning to go with 3475. Crew still be found (any volunteers?).
I am hoping to camp with a small tent in the club grounds.

Thank you for a very interesting talk. May I add my two pennyworth. I believe that Wyche and Coppock used Aerodux glue which was longer lasting than Aerolite. Today Wessex Resins recommend "GFlex" epoxy for glueing wood as it is less rigid.

Here is the picture referenced above in the first link. The other links appear "dead".

Built during 2019 by Simon Hipkin Boats, N3551 was just about ready when I collected her from Simon's workshop in January 2020. Simon and I spent a day 'finalising' N3551, but it was clear that the build quality and attention to detail was incredible. The full story behind why we decided to buy new is in the 2020 Newsletter.

First launched at RHYC in February 2020 at the Mid-Winter Champs, we sailed straight into the first race and held good speed. N3551 was a delight to sail. Coming from a Feeling Foolish, we had a lot to learn still, with a custom internal layout and the T-Foil rudder. Aside from the odd adjustment here and there, we seemed to sail N3551 quicker each time we went out which is encouraging.

After a shortened season in 2020, N3551 went back to Simon's workshop in early 2021 to have the graphics applied and they really are the 'finishing touch'. Much like with our Feeling Foolish, the plan is to club race at RHYC whilst attending N12 Open Meetings, Norfolk Week, Burton Week etc.
