Where do I get…

Discounted Chandlery

www.dinghystore.co.uk

These folks have offered us a 10% or more discount in return for a link from the website. This is untested, but the instructions are to go to their website, click on 'log in' at the top, filling your details and put “Cherub Class Ass.” in the “Company” box on the form. Then (apparently) you'll get a discount on everything, in-store or on-line.

Please report your experiences here.

Tiller Extensions:

  1. Get landing-net poles from a fishing shop. “Carp Thief” is the type you want. “Rugby Tackle” in Rugby is the shop recommended by Iain Christie.
  2. Get a thing called a 'whip' from a fishing shop. It is a long telescopic fishing rod with no reel or anything. Araldite the couple of sections at the fat end together, take out the thin ones - Hey presto - tiller extensions!

Or for more ideas have a look at Good Value Tiller Extensions

Carbon tubes:

RS800 masts. There are loads of these scattered around every dinghy park in the land, it seems! Windsurfer masts. Ditto.

Carbon sock cloth:

This frenchman runs a mail order business in the NE of England.
