The Market Place .........

The Market Place ......... - 11/19/13 08:26 PM

I often find some real treasures on the various auction sites we all cruise through be it daily or occasionally.
At times many of these gems don't get sold due to a wrong or bad listing details, sadly poople just aint speilln proper nah moor or dey aint reedin n tikin da detales proopere
wink


so I figured a thread listing some of the bits we find for sale may well help others in their hunt for boats /parts etc, it may also steer the unsuspecting away from a bad deal if someone else has some knowledge they can add about the various listings.
It may also help with the Mosquito registery as unknown boats pop up (1182 is a classic example of this)
smile
The down side is you might be the only other person 'watching' and be thinking your about to grab a bargin, sorry if I spoiled your party but I've just helped another buyer and a mozzie sailer, so add some more coin to the bank wink

2 recent listings

Gumtree:
Mosquito Catamaran Centreboards - boyer

I sent a message to them asking for more details... the reply:
The sail number is 1680
One of the main sails not in very good condition - But other is in very good condition and is the brand Goodall
The jib will need replacing not in very good condition
If you could please supply a email or mobile number happy to send more photos
Trailer- Believe is registered just can't find the sticker- But would end 3rd of January 2014
No sail box fitted or supplied





what have you found of late ?

not quite a mossie, but this has to be the most over priced old cat in Oz. I wouldn't pay fifth the asking price.

Re: The Market Place ......... - 11/22/13 06:37 AM

Hi guys,

In regard to #656 mentioned above, does anyone know any more about it???

I have a mate seriously considering it, and so I was wondering if any of you folk knew the boat or its owner and could give me any further info that would help my mate make his decision. He just missed out on #1680 and is fairly keen to try Mozzie!

Cheers
Posted By: Pirate

Re: The Market Place ......... - 11/22/13 11:58 AM

656 would be a bit of an unknown simply because of the 20years of storage that the seller has stated....

best bet would be to ask the questions via the eBay message system then get a forum member to have a look for you.

I saved the pics from the add and ran them through my photo program and the thing looks very tidy from the photos I could actually work with. Half if them are just too far out of focus to bring up clearly enough....iPhone pic quality crazy

Contact the seller and ask for pictures to be emailed directly to you, I'd be chasing pics of the sails, boom, rudders, centreboards, none of which have been shown....
once you have those ask for some better general shots wink

eBay wont let you message a email address, but you can get around it by doing this style of thing.....

I assume your mate has had a gander at these.......

Re: The Market Place ......... - 11/23/13 09:42 AM

Hi Hack,

there where a huge number of Mossies built in those days, but I would say that from the description and care taken this looks like a good set of hulls, so at the right price could be ok, but the rest is so dated, the buyer would only realy be buying 70's shaped (narrow, not much rocker) ply hulls, if that is what he is after, could be a good solid set of hulls.

All round sailing enjoyment. I've had this solid action machine out in 30+ knot winds by myself or happily cruised around with 4 children. Victorian Bruce Carter ply hulls with glass tape reinforced seams.
Mounted on a registered fully serviceable 6x4 long yoke trailer with removable roll on/off boat frames. Brand new tyres.
Importantly I can completely set up, launch and retrieve this boat on and off the trailer all by myself, including stepping the mast (and I'm almost 60).
2 mainsales (1 flat, 1 full), 1 jib, and 1 spinnaker (with pole but not rigged)
FICO adjustable trapeze rings all round and 2 full trapeze harnesses.
Ronstan battlestar extendable tiller.
Really heavy duty Ronstan mainsheet set up.
Pop up rudders for easy beaching and Centreboards centrally cleated for easy lifting.

a little more info has been received along with 5 more pics (PM me if you want the additional pics)

Quote
The sail number is 920

The centreboards are fine. 1 has a split which will eventually get bigger but works fine while out on water.

Steering wise cat turns well

There is only mainsail but no jib

The trailer needs rego there is a crack towards the front of the trailer which I have cleated apart from surface rust and lights not working. axles and hitch point fine and the trailer tows fine.

200ks should be sweet

Most problems with the cat are cosmetic. Tramp needs new eyelits and rope plus painting

I take it out still and don't have any problems. But it definitely needs a good cleanup.

Re: The Market Place ......... - 06/15/14 10:28 AM

Mosquito 194 certainly is an oldie but a goodie.

Lots of quality old fittings in VG condition.

I think the hulls are ok ... I will know more soon. I will check to see how much they weigh and if they are watertight.
Posted By: Greg/Debra

Re: The Market Place ......... - 06/15/14 11:52 AM

If the hulls are OK it would be a shame to wreck a good old Mossie for parts, I think. It would be better to use it as a training boat for up and coming young Mossie sailors. (In my humble opinion.)

Posted By: Matthew Dawson

Re: The Market Place ......... - 06/15/14 08:12 PM

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

grin
Posted By: Matthew Dawson

Re: The Market Place ......... - 06/16/14 09:38 PM

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.

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 ?

Posted By: Got Wood

Re: The Market Place ......... - 07/04/14 06:52 AM

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.

Anyone spotted this one?

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?
Posted By: stillbitten

Re: The Market Place ......... - 07/14/14 09:06 AM

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

Re: The Market Place ......... - 07/31/14 10:35 PM

I am ummming and arrring about selling Beckit 1824 at the moment.

I have got a job in Port Hedland and have to move there for the next 2 years. I don't really want my boat sitting there doing nothing, but I have spent a lot of time, money and effort building the boat, putting on good gear and setting it up well so have a lot of attachment to it.

I guess I can either keep it some where or sell and build again upon my return, but the lead time for a new hull was pretty long last time. Is there a good place people know of where I can store it on the trailer inside for 2 years at a decent price?

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.
Posted By: Simon C

Re: The Market Place ......... - 12/29/14 12:02 AM

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

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.
Posted By: Matthew Dawson

Re: The Market Place ......... - 02/03/15 08:25 AM

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)

Re: The Market Place ......... - 02/04/15 11:32 AM

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.

Re: The Market Place ......... - 02/05/15 02:31 AM

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.
Posted By: Got Wood

Re: The Market Place ......... - 02/05/15 02:34 AM

And my next sailing move....not sure yet but possibly won't involve cats at all, I will always own one, be it the Taipan or Mozzie, but theres other things I want to do sailing wise as well.

When the ad said 'recently painted' that was a strong indication (although not as definite as Matt actually asking him).

In the register it has the name "Missbeast" which suggests it was a Russell Denholm boat (all his boats are Beasts). In that case it could be light and a reasonably good shape as well.

That bar across the front chainplates contradicts the "sound hulls" description. Although it does actually say "sound hull" so maybe only one of them is sound!

Hi,

For you locals that way at Swan Hill / Lake Boga.

If I come via West Wyalong, Hay, Booroorban, Moulamein, Swan Hill.
Any comment on the road from Booroorban to Swan Hill through Moulamein?

What's a round trip of some 3,200 km or so......

Looked up Lake Boga, wow, flying boats, that must make the start line interesting....

Hi Drew.
Congrats on a great buy , that boat is in very good order and a Fey or is that Fay boat. I travelled to Lake Boga the Easter just gone and it took me 20 hrs . Bit of a slog but using the Newel was good because there is less traffic. From memory Best way to go is as you have suggested. Good luck.
Dave.

Hey Drew.
Fantastic to see you back in the game. You'll be hard to catch now with that Fay/Denholm boat.
Brett and I will meet up with you at Cootharaba for a good old catch up.
Dave.
Forgot to mention . Yes Lake Boga is a Beautiful spot. The locals are justifiably proud of their club.

Re: The Market Place ......... - 11/17/15 07:42 AM

What a bargain! I have never seen a Mossie for $100 before. I thought we were doing well when we bought 1140 for $200.

The same boat sold for $520 on eBay 3 years ago. Looks like the buyer did nothing with it and is now cutting his losses.

Some people reckon that sailing is an expensive sport, but entry level sailing can be very cheap.

Hi,

I have a second hand set of boyer centre boards I was looking to sell, just trying to work out what they are worth?

Thanks

I bought a second hand pair for my Taipan 2 years ago. They had been re-finished and painted (not gel coat) and cost me $120. But that was cheap.
