Flying 10 by Johnson and Loftus - Stop Press! THEY WON!!!

Our friends Tim and Dan have just built this lovely Flying 10 which they will be exhibiting at the Dinghy Show this weekend. Before they can enter the Concours d'Eegance the boat has to be sailed so here they are in Loch Broom with show capped peaks in the background enjoying what must be the greatest pleasure of building a boat - the first sail! Our minor part in this beautiful boat was supplying the rigging. We used these handy swaged eyes so that 3 mm Dyneema D Pro could be lashed to the...

All the details are below.

Emergency Navigation Lights

In the past we have supplied some pretty appalling dross which describes itself as "Emergency Navigation Lights". They remind me of CATNAPs which in certain engineering worlds apparently stands for " C heapest A vailable T echnology to N arrowly A void P rosecution". Pretty much useless items. So when a friend asked me if we could supply some for her yacht I was a bit concerned. She needed to make a daytime passage but if the wind wasn't favourable and she lost the flood then it could end up...
