Haselgrove Mold

Postby GuestMember on Wed Nov 16, 2011 2:23 pm

The Haselgrove mold is now in WA and I was woundering if anyone new the hystory of this mold.

Is the shape OK and are the boats that come out of it in the past fast.

I now that Ben Lawrie from Complete Composites builds a realy great boat as I have seen some of his 14's and Javelin's, so should be no issue there.

Great to see a mold over in WA. Having a local glass builder will surely help the class grow. I saw a recent boat out of this mold at the National's in Adelaide. It looked great. I mistook it for a new YMS boat as has a very similar finish on the decks.

As for fast? I think the nut on the end of the tiller is a larger influence, however I can categorically say that it's not slow! Why? I vividly remember being lee bowed by this particular boat :-)

Thanks for keeping us all posted on what's going on over in WA.

Cheers,
