Hi All,

Just got the word, it's been a long gestation period, but my new platform 1830 is finaly ready to pick up.

This will be the 4th new boat I have owned in 47 years of sailing eek , can't wait until next weekend to see it in the flesh. Setting it up just the way I want, at my own pace over winter will be very enjoyable. grin

Easy guy's I haven't even seen it yet crazy , pics will come.

Not planning on sailing it anytime soon, want to take my time setting it up, got some special plans, you'll have to wait to see.

Also need to sell 1766 to finance finishing it off.

It's going to be called "Still Bitten" no surprise there grin.

Hi all,

Picked her up today and home safely. grin

Before you say anything, have taken some pics, but you'll have to wait for somebody less computer challenged than me to post them crazy . But don't get too excited, it's just another boring white Mossie (at this stage) wink All the good stuff is hidden, centreboards are the most interesting part to look at, going to be interesting if I can feel any difference with the maximum length boards, hope to try them in 1766 at Easter cool

For anybody else interested in buying a new all carbon Mossie platform, beamed with centreboards and to cut some of the rumours that run about the place regarding the cost of Australian made 4.9 metre cat hulls. I can report the price for anybody to get a Mossie made like mine is $12,930. shocked Is this the most expensive Mossie ever? I guess so, but somebody had to do it cry

Not really a shock, was in line with quotes, so all good. smile

They are the same width as the Boyer "Flyer" A class boards I have been using in my Mossie for the last 4 years, 8 inches.

Why I am interested in trying these maximum (Mossie rule) length boards is that the "Flyer" boards I have been using are shorter under the Mossie than the A class, as the hull of the Mossie is deeper than the A class so less sticks out. So it's possible they have been a bit too small, these new boards (now available from JK Fibreglass) are the other extreme, so I am keen to find out if you can feel any difference when sailing, better pointing, more lift etc. And are there any down sides?

Hopefully find out this weekend whistle.

New boards didn't fit in 1766 cases, carpet was too tight, so have to wait till 1830 hits the water to find out how they go.

Hi all,

Well due to work pressures and life in general getting in the way, it's been a long time coming for Still Bitten, but it's getting closer and will definitely be seen at the Nats.

Well finally got the mast up today, with an old set of kinked stays grin . It's starting to come together whistle , got the pole rigged, so just a new set of stays this week and shorten the dyneema traps and should be ready to rig up at the water next Saturday and get out for a test sail in the arvo smile . Then Sunday morning 10am ready to race to Loch Sport with Tim and Neil and visit Pete, can't wait cool .

Hi Gary.

That's great that your new boat is getting closer to being sailed .

You must have had your patience tested in the process of getting a new Mossie on the water.

Some good sailing time before the nats' should see you arrive in good shape.

Hi Dave,

Thanks for the positive vibe smile , finally got her on the water late today grin , just long enough to work out half a dozen things that need fixing frown But hopefully will be sorted for the 10am start tomorrow.

Felt really fast, accellerated quickly in gusts and very light and bouncy on the water. Long centreboards felt good, can't wait to sail with Tim, Neil and Pete tommorrow, hope it's not upwind though, that means a couple hours of trapezing and I haven't sailed since Easter cry

Hey Nick,

Does that mean you are going to sail with Spinnaker at the Nats confused just so you can be canon fodder wink Not sure about 50kg, but I tried to do the right thing and put 1.6kg of lead fixed to the bulkheads yesterday. Bathroom Scales weighed 1830 between 1.5 kg and 3 kg under, but after the Titles here, the visitors needed all my lead, so I only had 1.6kg left, realisticly it couldn't need much more than another .5kg.

So after sailing under spinnaker with Tim, Neil and Pete for about 90 minutes going to Loch Sport in 5 to 15 knots and back with Tim and Neil for about 90 minutes tight reaching and beating in about 10 to 15 knots, I think its fair to say that 1830 is not slower than my previous Mossie and the long centreboards haven't slowed 1830 down. But my rigging did blush

It felt awesome grin, when I wasn't breaking stuff blush cry. Even ended up baptizing 1830 after breaking the trapeze when I was nearly home.

Get the bugs sorted out when I get to sail again from Boxing Day to New Years and its all good to go for the Nats whistle I hope wink

No, no spinnaker for me........I am sure you have more than enough cannon fodder *lol*

Sounds like lots of fun.....a new boat is always special.

Have a great Christmas and I will see you at Speers point........

Hey Al Scorpion, I think you had better sail your boat more and spend less time on the net. You sound a bit like your on the wrong forum.

Absolutely Not, I love the mozzie class and am on the water every chance I get. Merely stating my opinion that this mozzie would be much better without the spinnaker smile maybe not beating A'S and the like but still! Enjoy your new machine
