I was thinking that someone might want to build a 'new' mozzie using these old hulls to create a good but cheap platform. I don't see why they can't be used ...

Mosquito 194 will be doing more to encourage young cat sailors by providing parts for my AC than it would have otherwise I reckon. I don't see why using an old boat for parts for a new boat is a problem ... a mozzie is way too much boat for my kids.

194 has been advertised for quite a long period and the owner only received a couple of calls about it, sadly the older girls get little attention and being chopped up and utilised elsewhere is a better end than finding the rubbish fire
eek

Unfortunately not all of us can see or enjoy the potential the older boats can give, Twice Shy for example has been an absolute blast and has taken trophies on several occasions when I was outclassed by far more modern boats..... it can be done but it takes commitment and determination to get there.

Matthew has already found a home for the hulls and they'll be stored for spares or future re-assembly ..... wink

its a good outcome for 194....... I just hope Matthew takes her out for one last broad-reach

Sorry, I have already started to (carefully) disassemble 194. I wouldn't have sailed her as is. Nice set of hulls (I think) but not quite sailable in current state. No centreboards either.

Never fear - 194 will live on for sure. I am actually tempted to take her on as a project myself. smile

The hulls will definitely be kept.

The seller says the sail number is 1636. It looks to be a good entry level boat and the price (with registered trailer) is great.

I was supprised at how clean and 'sharp' it all looks, with my photo program you can always find a whole host of uglys hidden by a poor quality pic, in this old girls case its supprisingly neat.
I haven't priced that car-top sail-box but I'll bet they aint cheap by any means. General overall condition is good and at a great price how could you go wrong !!

the deck is lifting at the front shroud point but he's shown that and it looks a real easy fix, the only other bit I could see was a small deck separation at the transom, 2 drops of resin and a nail and its fixed.

mmmmmm

do I need 3 ?

eek

Theres a quite a few earlier boats that were glass hulls and timber decks, quite heavy and not without issues with the difference in materials as the hulls would have been polyester resin (I believe chopped strand mat = weight)would have been fine at the time, but as they age the decks usually became seperated.

Quite repairable (if required)though, if worse came to worse, could be redecked with modern glues and glass.

Hi all,

Anyone spotted this one?

Price seems right...

http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Catamara...in_15&hash=item2c8722d9e8&_uhb=1


I notice that it has 'dagger' style rudders by the looks. Why isn't this a favoured option for most current mozzies?

Any amount is too much for Glass Hulls from my experience sick. They are too heavy, too flexible and usualy the skin has broken away from all the framing inside cry. Better of with a ply boat, it least it can be fixed. smile

I took one of these to the tip years ago, rolled the hulls off into the hole, kept the trailer and rig though whistle.

Dagger rudders have generaly been dropped from cats. The ones I have used had too much slack in them and scratched the blades, also most have no fail safe if run aground, which makes damage likely when you have 2 to pull up in a emergency. blush

It might be wiser for the seller to sell them individually rather than as a pair.

There are not that many people who would want to buy two Mossies.
