Transom flap material
« on: July 29, 2016, 10:39:52 AM »
I need to make some new transom flaps - can someone advise where to buy that thin/flexible clear plastic everyone seems to use these days?


Thanks, Dave

Hi Dave,

For Dinsdale I went really high tech......................

The flaps are the light weight clear acetate from the local builders merchant used for replacement glazing - if I had known I could have let you have some a couple of weeks ago!

For the hinges, simply kevlar sail repair tape, simples!!

Have a look at the pics on the website (N2632) and you will see how it worked.
