Reply To: Just bought OK 1899 advice please
Anyone have any thoughts on what hull it might be?
it currently has a red top mast but I also have a black top mast in better condition, which would be better for someone around 13 1/2 stone, would someone be able to post up a pic of how the sail is rigged by the outhaul, mine looks very messy and creased in this area, not sure if it’s just a knackered sail or if I’ve got it completely wrong. The rear deck area is very soft GRP that flexes easily, when I removed the rear hatch cover there is a large piece of polystyrene lying in there, should this be bonded to the top, if so what would be the best way of doing it. Finally, if I change to the black top mast I will have to alter the kicker system, is their a guide or could someone post some photo’s of the best type of kicker system for me to follow. Sorry for all the questions but there isn’t anyone at my club who knows much about OK dinghies..
