Musto Skiff

Bow Sprit End Plug : Now Available.

There have been suggestions that we change the end of the bow sprite fitting from the block to a end plug.

This arrangement is standard in the 49er, 29er, RS200 & RS400 and other classes.

This arrangement has the benefit that you can't get the tack line wrapped round the pole causing a problem when you launch the pole - if this has ever happened to you, you will know this is difficult to rectify and slow ...

Also - with the current set-up it is a class rules requirement that there is an end plug in for safety; you would not want to be hit with a pole with no end plug as it may take a core sample of you !!! Frequently we see people sailing with no end plug which is not good for safety.

Andy Tarboton has tested the new set-up extensively and recommends it.

Below shows the current and new solution with identical bearing points.

This was covered in the class on-line survey in November and voted in favour.

The new plug is now available from Ovington.

There is a fitting guide on the Ovington Page.
