    Alternatives to an Epping

    You can buy new Eppings but it might be easier to try jumping through several hoops of fire. I may have one for sale very soon if successful in negotiating said hoops, to add to my collection of reconditioned ones also up for sale.

    Dunton Windlass

    I'm hoping I've some sort of fore end, not sure what yet! I may well be coming into Braunston in astern gear ๐Ÿ˜• We're sorting prices out tomorrow and I'll also sort out postage costs next week. If more peeps throw theirs into the cut this time next year I may well be a millionaire๐Ÿ˜€

    I'm hoping to have a selection of Dunton Double and Double+ windlasses for sale at Braunston this weekend. Hoping to be there on Star, that is if Steve can put the gas axe down for a moment. I could tell you the full story as to how we've got to this point......................................but I'm not.๐Ÿ˜‚ Maybe a few beers at the weekend may loosen my tongue.๐Ÿบ๐Ÿบ๐Ÿบ

    Unbuilt Britain - Scottish Lowland Ship Canal

    Judging by the depth of those cuttings I think we can safely say that would have been the original and mother of all 'Big Digs'.

    Are you going back to wood gunwales ? Yes,from back bulkhead forrad. Corollas in for gunnels too. Perhaps we should buy a tree between us!

    'I would have thought side cloths could be attached to steel gunwales by clamping them down with steel strip (instead of the wooden battens on wooden gunwales), but the best way of holding down the steel strip I would need some advice on. The 'ringoles' could be welded in place above and below the steel gunwales at the normal intervals as has been done on a few other boats.' Side cloths pinned to gunnel by shaped (angled) wooden battens and secured by m/c screws tapped into box section gunnel. Staples attached to battens secure side cloth strings then as you say gunnel rings welded to box section to secure top strings. You can have mine............it's all coming off..............
