Hi All,
Is anyone else curious about the mysterious "Long Steps" design by John Welsford? I hear it mentioned on and off, but have no idea what it is, though it sounds like a variation on the SCAMP design. Oh John......... can you fill us in?

HI Jeff, I've been using a hook without a gate on the outhaul, and it has been OK, except that in very flappy conditions the clew tends to pop out before I get the outhaul tensioned. I've now attached a 'biner with a gate, and it works great. Who would have thought?........ I'm also using a simplifi...

Hi Johann, I'm with Jeff on swinging on the hook. I have a friend who beached his Scamp (on a lake with no tide) and the wind came up in the night and literally filled his boat with water from waves. He now contends that boats belong in the water where they can move with the waves and not get pooped...

Hey Scampers, I've thought that it would be fun to have the rally during the WBF, and join in the racing, etc. There's already a party going on, so we could just crash it and add a few scamp functions. Sorry that this weekend will be cancelled, but I was just going to drive up without a boat anyway ...

Another question: I've just heard that the Scamp Regatta is 7/6-8/17, but I've not seen any official notice yet. Has that been posted somewhere? Also, I'm interested in the pram kit that might work as a tender for a Scamp, and wondering when that might be available. Might there be room at the Scamp ...

Yay, It's scamp season again. For those of us who might stop by, can you give directions to the new shop when it is up and running?
Looking forward to seeing you all again,

I've found that the fiberglass battens that are sold at Westmarine [they're orange and 8 ft long] are surprisingly strong and don't take up much space on the floor of the boat. I use two, the main one shortened only slightly to 7 ft [determined by how high I want the arch of the tent. I want to sit ...

That's a great idea to have a drain plug. I'll add that to my floor-cutting plans. Your anchor collection is impressive, but I see one gap in your lineup: no old engine block. At any rate, if there's a big blow, I'm hooking up to you!
Happy sailing!

Hey Jeff, I'm a step behind you and plan to make a footwell in TOR soon. My experience with some used "super suckers" was not good, but they were old and leaky. I'm planning on putting in some kind of pump that will remove any water that accumulates in a few squirts, but I don't see the ne...

Here's another vote for the kit! I built my scamp four years ago, and one of the pleasures of "assembly" was the knowledge that the tolerances were .005", and that the pieces fit like legos. When things "clicked" together, it was proof that all was well with the alignment an...
