    Last heard of with Geoff Turton: he used to take it to boat jumbles.  I doubt that he'd want to part with it.  Perhaps someone could make a new one?

    Does anyone knows what happened to the Junkrig mockup that was presented at  the Southampton boat show a "few" years ago !

    I remember the tiny stand with that mockup with middle age men demonstrating the sail up and down reefing and unreefing.

    I don't know why but it is associated, in my mind with a pile of small thin plywood and a dinghy construction competition or something like that. It might be the next by stand.

    If it still exist it could be a nice support to demonstrate junkrig to the Roscoff froggies !

    That model was used to demonstrate junk rig to people at boat jumbles by Robin Blain. Sadly, both Robin and his wife Mandy have now passed away. It was through meeting Robin and studying his model that I became a junk rig enthusiast and a JRA member. I'd love to know what became of his models.
