    • 2017 vintage that has been used 4/5 times since then and is in nearly new condition.  The hull is carbon construction painted in mid blue. It is measured and registered.  It has the following;- RMG sail winch HiTek rudder servo A swing rig with Sailsetc carbon and Housemartin sails  BG A swing rig suit sails B/C1/C2/C3 suits conventional rig Sails etc carbon and Housemartin sails All in separate rig bags and all rigs have been stored flat. BG sails in a tube as supplied.  600 & 700mm long carbon fins and ballasts Dave Potter Hull and Fin bag I’m based in Solihull in the West Midlands but willing to meet up at a convenient point. The reason for the sale is simple I don’t have anywhere near I can sail it and it’s got to go. A full set of photos are available £1600    
    • Afternoon Steve. It’s been rescheduled to September 11 I believe. I’ll confirm it after a chat at the club on Sunday. 
    • 4 years down the line now and Alternative continues to sail well. Have often been asked about the boat when sailing; seems to be a popular design for home building.  The only mod I have made is the fitting of a small Hitec waterproof servo (HS5086 WP) right on the rudder stock. This employs a small moulding made by Dave Creed. See picture for installation.  Very effective and, because it is lighter than a typical rudder servo, does not have a negative effect being right on the end of the boat.  Absolutely no play because there is no linkage. BUT the achievable angle is greater. Now this is useful when using the rudder as a brake; start line for example. Needs to be allowed for in normal sailing though. Have used this servo completely in the open on Mini 40 trimaran, but lives under the aft deck patch on Alternative. Richard
