    dolly with bow support vs 'nose' support

    Hi Duncan The bow support (semi circular that the bow/deck edge sits on) is better IMHO as it allows locking in the bow with a short piece of line (or the tail end of your mainsheet in a pinch) . This is helpful when the surface is bumpy or when it's windy and the sail it up and attached to...

    Laser bunk dolly

    Given the age of the hull, and the prev owner's storage methods, it's not surprising the the hull/deck joint is failing. I doubt the storage of the hull on the dolly hangers caused it to separate, I'm guessing it was already cracked/failed and became easier to see once it was hanging. Your...

    Repair Mast Tube Base; Invitation 3.8

    Mast step tube broken at the top end

    "This is why you see a lessening level of adhesive wear on the tube going downward" Can you explain that a little more. Also would be interested in your explanation of the direction(s) of the forces of the mast against the deck. I don't disagree that in any glass repair, extending beyond...
