    Purchased original Rojair Mickey Finn from Ashton Models 35 years ago - hull suffered damaged so made a F/G mould before repairing and sailing. Made spare hull from mould and there she sat for 35+ years. Original Mickey was sold many years ago but as retirement approached the burning desire to fulfill old challenges re-emerged.
    So , after putting out calls for help, diagrams, photos or information on the model boat forums, thanks to "John Dowd" and a couple of other guys, I finally got round to resurrecting this fantastic 36" yacht.

    I collected my Mickey Finn hull this morning and am well pleased. Far better condition than the price I paid would have indicated. So, I am in the same situation, I would like to find a set of the right gear for her, otherwise I'll put together something that will look right. At the moment, there's no hurry, she's about number four in the orderbook of this shipyard.

    Cheers, Nerys.

    Hope any info on Mickey Finn (particularly mast boom and sail dimensions) can be posted on the forum for all to see.

    Thank you Ken for your efforts on my behalf. It would be a great help to see the real thing and find out what I have to achieve. We'll be at the lake on Saturday, unless the weather is absolutely dreadful, and will bring the hull along to show you.

    The photos and exploded diagrams posted by Philcaretaker and RN in Munich were a great help with sizes etc, if you noticed them, 2Shaws, but will share any new information I receive.

    Cheers,
    Nerys
