If you have a machine shop nearby they should be able to
mill out your old ally stock and it shouldn't cost the
earth. You could then epoxy in a new carbon tube.

Its all time and a pain in the arse Garry, i was hoping i could of sent it off to be repaired but the quote i have
just had back makes it almost as expensive as upgrading to
the full carbon one!! I also don't have time to get the
tiller milled out. Hopefully my carbon one will be here tout sweet!

Sorry for delay. Seems to be OK in salt water. Gets a good hosing after each sail.

Well my new carbon stock arrived today, its super slick! Although there are a few questionable issues with the finish and layup.  I have fitted it out so i am ready to race again this bank holiday.  I did weigh both stocks as promised, but only on my rather battered set of digital bathroom scales.  they both weigh pretty much the same, although the carbon one to the fell is slightly lighter. It would appear my bathroom scales are not sensitive enough to measure the differences.

I must at this point thank James Jarvey of JJ boats, the service he delivered with the quick turnround of this stock was second to none.  He communicated impeccably which is such a rare thing (i find) in the dinghy industry.  He was also the only person in the country with a carbon stock in stock!

I'll post some pictures up this weekend. 

 

PS if anyone wants to have a go at repairing a broken winder epoxy stock (broken alloy tiller)  then make me an offer on it.

Watch this carefully. Depends on the aluminium, but I've just had to repair some carbon poles seriously damaged by an ali sleeve corroding. And the boat was sailed on fresh water.

Yo MerlinBoy, your PM box is full and I might be interested in the broken stock!!!!

Cheers,

Chris

Stick it on ebay with some pictures and dimensions and let us all know?

I suspect someone who needs one quickly will pay a bit more than someone like me who intends to put it aside until a blade comes along/gets made!  Hard to guess a value but if  I buy something on ebay, theres always the idea that you can re-sell it for the next lowest bid if it doesn't work out...

There is an interesting article on the N12 website showing how to make one. I fancy having a go, but don't have the time right now.

expected better... then as if by magic, one would arrive on a courier to my
office on Wednesday morning with enough time for me to sod off early
and go sailing...

one phone call, job done.

I agree RS are very good with their warranty stuff when it involves a component they can send you but you wont be quite so happy if you have a hull issue….. When I had a split in an RS hull due to poor manufacture I ended up having to tow the boat back to them, leave it there 2 weeks and then go back again to collect it, a total of 400 miles driven on my own time and expense for a warranty issue. I then had to repeat that 2 further times due to the repairs not working! A total of 1200 miles!

Ha, Jimbo when i had my 300 rudder and stock stolen it
wasn't that simple pal. They were out of stock and it
took 2 weeks (at least) if i remember!! The lead time
was crap, The winder stock has got to be one of the most
popular stocks on the market (hasn't it) I think in
hindsight i should of sold my milanes blade and bought on
of these!!

But i hadn't seen them before i ordered my new stock.

That looks like a dagger rudder. No thanks!

I can't believe the pivoting Winder is any heavier, so why would you pay a higher price and have considerably more inconvenience/breakability if you hit a rock?
