Pink kite sheets

SkiffRopes.com are now making pink spinnaker sheets and mainsheets.  Hopefully you see some winning races on the Cherubs, 13s and and 16s soon.

The sheets are made from LIROS Magic Sheet.  The rope has a very compact polypropylene core and polyester cover.  The FireStopping 16 Foot Skiff Team have been using this rope for their spinnaker sheets since 2009.

Bring a boat around for splicing

I like it when someone brings their boat to my place for splicing.

It was a pleasure doing some decorative splicing for Michael’s model wooden boat. Impressive woodwork.
