I love pondering over old Moth Boat photos. Brad Linthicum, a sail maker in southern New Jersey was cleaning out his files and sent me the two photographs shown here. He couldn't remember why he had them or who had sent them to him. Fifty years is a long time.
Update from Peter Moor: 1st
photo is David Bowen with pocket luff hockey stick mast. Mystique was a
manta ray "mouldie" - probably 3 layers of diagonally planked
Australian red cedar. 2nd photo could be Peter Holmes also on a
"mouldie" with a square top pocket luff sail which took over from the
hockey stick masts because of their relative simplicity. Both photos
Sydney Harbour Seaforth Moth Club, late 60s. NB; No wings or sun
For those curious about the location of the Seaforth Moth Club paste Captain Barnacles' map link (found below, in the comments for this post). Thanks to both commenters!
