Mushy Peas

Mushy Peas (GBR3898) is a Magnum 6 design International Moth, built in around 1986 from plywood and rebuilt a few years ago with a carbon deck and bulkhead after the original deck disintegrated. She’s also got new cedar/carbon foils, carbon prodder, carbon/kevlar boom and the lightest bendiest alloy mast I’ve ever come across!

Below are some photos of her at my old sailing club in Welwyn Garden City, plus one of the more recent paint job (I must have sanded eight layers of paint off!) as she was before I sold her in November 09.
