Over the border Gordon where, I'm pleased to say, it will be actively raced cool . I'll let the new owner announce themselves when they take delivery. As for me, I'm going to the dark side and will be sailing "the other" 16 footer. Just have to find one now! Merry Christmas smile I'll see you on the water no doubt.

Hey Simon,

Going to miss your input in the Mossies, certainly appreciate what you have done for the class in the short time you've been involved and appreciate your passion. cool

Good luck with the move to the dark side, I understand how difficult these decisions can be, if there where some at my club I would have been tempted. sick

But to us Mossies soon you'll be just another "Snake in the Grass" to beat wink.


Regards Gary.

Thanks Gary.

I'm not sure 9 years is a "short time" smile but it has been a lot of fun. Sad to see her go but I grew weary of no week to week competition and didn't want to change clubs. That left a Taipan as the only real alternative for me as we have a fleet that races regularly. I suspect the extra width and sail area might be a little more suited to my ageing, lanky (and not so light anymore) frame blush

Truth be known... having collected a 2nd in a state title crazy I've clearly reached the pinnacle of my Mozzie sailing career... It can only be downhill from there as I can't see myself mowing down your Carbon Beast wink so it is a good time to move on.

Thanks to everyone for the assistance when starting out and friendship and fun along the way.... and for voting me President at one stage (because no one else would stand laugh )

Good luck at the nationals for those making the trip.

See you on the water

Hmmm wink

Good point, I think it was a great Mossie oracle that said "Time is Relative" grin

Nine years is just a blink of an eye, in Mosquito History cry.

But a lifetime in Taipan History grin grin

He'll get more info for me today......

the trailer is registered till November apparently & he cant recall if there's even a sail number on the sail....

wait n see I guess

yep, great price for an entry level boat
smile


sailed against StickFinger (752), a couple of weekends ago. The buyer that gets this boat will have a great base to start from, its in supprisingly good nick with a lot of current gear onboard. I'll talk to Matt today and if he's ok with it I'll add some pics
Was a great day with 4 mozzies all battling away, very close racing indeed

StickyFinger linky => 752

As with most things in life....pretty much anything is for sale at a price and I'll leave the Gumtree ad there til it runs out or does whatever they do.

But I've decided to temporarily not actively seek to sell Sticky Finger at the moment until I work out my next sailing move. But like I said if someone is geniunely interested it can be bought.

Cheers Matt.

What are the pros and cons between sailing the Mosquito and the Taipan Matt?

I know questions like these can easily generate discussions that get into biased, irrational 'class-bashing' and I don't want to do that, but I would be interested in hearing your thoughts as someone who has owned both boats (and built the Taipan?).

(I guess I am assuming that part of your 'next sailing move' deliberations involve which boat to sail)

Hi all,

Trying to have a shed clean out and have a couple of sails that came with 1782. Both have battens and bags. I haven't used either but im sure they are both good.

Clifton cross cut, 2008 model. Hasn't seen a lot of work and is in really good nick, previous owner changed sails then went back to it so hasn't seen much work for its age. $500

Goodall radial cut, 2006 model. Is in alright condition but showing some signs of wear as per its age. Hasn't been used in years but would be good entry level sail. $200.

I can put sail numbers and logos on for purchaser and freight can be arranged if needed.

Open to offers just PM me or call 0439335781.

Happy to email trough photos of the sails can't work out the upload system on here using iPad.

Without taking over this page...pro's and con's of sailing a Mozzie V Taipan...I don't think are any, I'm not interested in class bashing either...although evidently some find it hard to resist...

The reason I sailed the Mosquito the other week and probably will for a few more club races at least is that I'm tidying up the Taipan a bit, it is a homebuilt boat and after 7 years or so, theres a few little dings and scratches that have been annoying me for some time, probably not really noticable most of the time...but unfortunately my eyes are constantly drawn to these imperfections.

I sailed a Mosquito prior to Taipan, and still own that set of hulls as well, stored away for a rainy day.

There are 3 Taipans at Derrinallum, however getting them all on the water at the same time seems a challenge at the moment...so if I can make up 5 Mozzies at the club (and win.. haha), while this is the case, then it makes for good racing for all.

Sticky Finger hadnt seen the water for over 15 years went it hit the water the other week and went very well with a Supreme Main from the Mid 70's. I found a couple of things while on the water that will improve that a bit more, but couldn't change them on the water that day.
