There is  a committee meeting tabled for tonight. Watch this space please.

Perhaps some of the contributors to this thread might consider joining the association before saying 'we' in their posts.

The class will be exhibiting at the Dinghy Exhibition, but it will be a very fine example of a wooden boat. The class remains the owner of the moulds from which the recent, Devon Composites, boats were built.  As this thread discusses there is no builder currently able to offer to supply a new boat. Pending further, formal, correspondence with Devon Composites I can say no more the present.

Harry, first of all thank you for all the hard work the sub-committee has put in concerning the important matter of appointing a class builder.

Perhaps in view of your most recent post it may be a good idea to close this thread and wait till we hear the outcome of the matter with Devon Composites. I for one would not wish to post anything that could cause a problem.
 
I am sure that when a new builder is appointed we will all hear about it.

I started the thread which was stopped as there was nothing more to be said for the time being. The thread was then superseded by other topics. But the topic was not forgotten.

We do need to start production of new boats as a priority if the class is to survive and I am confident that the matter is in hand. 

I do not think that building a new boat is, in itself, the answer to anything. We need a builder who is committed to promoting the class and good enough to be supported and promoted by the class. So that the new boat will be the first of a steady (albeit slow) stream of boats built.

But perhaps in the meantime we need to maximise boats attending open meetings and the class in buying a Hornet will help show-case the boat at these events.

I have recently bought a Hornet and hope to be sailing in soon, crewed by my daughter - and she puts her "old man" to shame.

Hopefully we can start discussing the matter, any thoughts four years on.

Peter
