This is what you get from buying from a "specialist dealer" Ripped off. They buy from the car boot sale for 50p then try to re-sell for a fortune the day after.

Presumably being shipped from Australia and he slipped up with a decimal point!!
You could always sell your copy at this price and use the proceeds to buy Mirror Mania!

If we get Guy to sign our copies they would be worth twice as much....

We have a signed copy (Inge-lisa won it when she helmed for the first time at the last Brightliingsea nationals). Guy once tould us he had signed that many that an unsigned copy was probably worth more <img src=icon_smile.gif border=0 align=middle>

The book you all mention authored by Guy Wilkins is it a good source of info to get details of rigging.

FlyingPig, can I get a copy of your notes re rigging topic posted 2006.

Toddy, my turn to ask how the boat project is coming along, the photos are great, are their more??

I have made some progress since posting topic on rigging - a friend came over and we set up the boat he is however not familiar with boat and we found the references in Roy Partridges book not overly helpful and outdated when I look at what is being used on photos in the gallery.

Rope / sheet type, size and colour can anyone give me some good tips keep in mind I'm a novice at this

How do I get this topic copied to mirror talk forum?

Chris

Chris,
70466 is coming on fine. Currently upside down fairing the hull, not a fast job and doesnt make for exciting photos, will post some more when painting starts.
