International Moth cover and trampoline development

Rocket Moth 2016

Rocket Moth 2016

Aardvark Technologies have been busy making the Rocket International Moth over the past few years. The design of the boat has been honed and improved over time and so have the trampolines and covers. The tramps have been beefed up, made in 6.5 ounce black dacron with a new extended wing wrap pocket at the front wingbar. This has the effect of being a bit more aero, while also providing more space to hide control lines and extras.

Creation Covers supplies tramps, covers, toestraps and foil bags for the Rocket and can make covers for a variety of different moth designs also.

Creation Covers can make Merlin Rocket dinghy covers for your boat at competitive prices. There are many options available in our shop but with a class as diverse as the Merlins, a made to measure cover is possible with a pattern taken from your individual boat at an event or the Creation Loft in Perry Barr.

Weathermax is the material of choice for most Merlin sailors, who want breathability and a tidy looking cover. Trailing gear is also available, with padded bags for boom and poles, rudder bags for protection and undercovers with covered foredeck to keep the muck off.

We also do toestraps, tapered sheets and mast bags. New boat packs can be made up for the individuals requirements and as a Merlin sailor, Chris Gould is often at hand to discuss any details at events.

There is also a post about our range of toestraps and how they are made-   http://creationcovers.co.uk/better-tougher-toestraps-for-your-dinghy/

 

New for 2015-16 is a tapered sheet rope developed with English Braids. This is a little softer, a little thicker and a lot more comfortable, while being designed for smooth tapers, very low stretch with SK78 and very hard wearing with a twist mix Polyester jacket.

Merlin Rocket covers 2016

The Merlin is a class that is constantly changing. Always developing new ideas and bits of kit. The merlin dinghy cover designs from 2015 were a definate step on from what was offered before and this was because a lot of thought had gone into the design. There are always improvements to be made. Some are small and others seem obvious and necessary.

The ideas that were taken from the 2015 designs followed through into the 2016 covers, with the latest range giving the customer a much greater ability to personalise the covers with a choice of colours. The design for the flat topcover is the most popular, as it can be left in the boatpark as well as trailed with. This meant that a lot of the ideas were to make the cover better all round.

The most important changes are in the skirts being a little deeper, to offer a bit more protection from the sun, but a lot of the reason for the deeper skirts is to support the full transom cover and give it structure to hold the aft part of the cover taught. This then meant that scalloped darts were included along the top of the transom to promote better water run off. This again supported the material and provided a gradual slope away from the hoop. This also helps with trailing due to the cover having a more supportive design. The airflow going over the cover has less loose material that it can pick up and billow. The hoop cover now has an extra layer of material over the top to toughen it all up and the shrouds and lowers pass through a much better designed “L” shaped slit that much reduces the amount of water that can get in.
