All 3 are sailing together in my neck of the woods currently... with the Modern M's seperate.


That's a very nice breed of M you have there.

No, it is one of my own design. I only pulled 2 hulls. The class died shortly after I started campaigning this one.
Displacement - 9.5 Lbs
Waterline beam - 6.5"

Here is another pic behind my Round Ranger RG65.

^^ I've seen that photo before with the keel on it.
The reverse transom is on many boats, but it's what had me stabbing in the dark at Magic Dragon.

If you are in DE, your a significant distance, but not an insurmountable distance to bring that boat to the CM Nationals at Redds this summer.

The boat is not a "Classic" but a modern. However, I do have a mold for Bantock's No Secret.

John, new Pixel looks good and a 2nd at the vane nationals gives the impression of a well balanced boat. Look forward to seeing it in action at the RM Nats in June.

For all the photo junkies , here are some taken at the first German RM ranking event. https://picasaweb.google.com/1128182...eat=directlink

We regularly have fleets of 20 - 30 RMs and we actually have a number of skippers that have moved on from IOM to RM. At present the RM and IOM are evenly matched concerning fleet sizes and number of races in Germany.

Designs sailed vary by region. The north and east are heavily dominated by the Skalpel as it is Mr. Walickis home turf. The rest is a good mix of Skalpels, Prime Numbers in conv. and swing setup, Astras (built locally to super high standard under licence from SailsEtc), Starkers, Margo and in the right breeze the Paradox with updated fin and ballast is still strong.

I sailed the Starkers for three years and took on a Skalpel in 2011 giving me two race wins and currently 3rd place in the GER rankings.

We have a good 2nd hand market for RMs and subsequently the initial cost of entering the class is not much different to buying a competative IOM. A good Skalpel just swapped owner for € 800. Looking at the Starkers with Housemartin rigs it is less expensive than 90% of the commercially available IOMs.

Cheers
Nigel

Ah, yes on a closer look, that appears to be a 17"
Or even 18" keel.


Do you have the ability (and desire, really) to pull a quality hull
From the Bantock mold if someone wanted one?


The hull is by far the hardest part to build.
if people can get their hands on hulls economically, you can put a boat together very economically.

Thank you for your comments. I am still at the early stages of testing this design. Next year I hope to sail the finished product in many events, maybe travelling far and wide.
If anyone could pass me details in the future of there National Championships, I will certainly consider coming. Anywhere in Europe, USA and Australia are of interest.
