Next a shot of the mast area. Can see sheet adjusters coming through bulkhead. Also not the double mast rams for good mast control. Gooseneck is all carbon. Lower mast and boom stay with the boat to reduce cost on B and C rigs.

Plans for the new boat are available. Go to the 1.7 web site to download. http://www.orgsites.com/mi/1-7meter/ They are in PDF format. To get the body view full size you will need to copy. There is a 100mm x 100mm square provided for scaling. Good luck and let me know if you start one.

Very Nice looking boats.

Yes I have just had a look and I can not find a down load link on any of the pages. I'm keen to down load it and start building one.

One last question are the rigs one design.

cheers Andrew
Hi Andrew,
Are you still interested in getting this class going in Australia?
