Ready to race and prepared to championship
winning standard. The Scorpion is now built by Ovingtons and supplied
with Allen fittings as standard.
Hugely active in the class over the past
decade and more, P&B fitted out boats have taken the majority of
national and inland championships and our sail package has an unrivalled
track record of success in the class.
During this period we have refined the
systems and control lines so all are lead to the place of easiest use.
This refinement includes the carbon twin pole launching system with a
lazy guy system. The cunningham is led to under the mainsheet jammer and
a continous kicker lead to behind the twart on either side to allow both
helm and crew to access it. Pole height and crew adjustable toe strapes
led to either side near the shrouds. Also includes a fully adjustable
jib sheeting at the pull of a string and a rig system that allows us to
find over two feet of rake to power or depower your rig on the water
according to conditions. The outhaul and flattener are lead to
under the boom with a 2-1 purchase in the boom. All this with the rig
tension and kicker calibrated in to the raking system means truly is a
one string system and completes the championship winning fit out.
Even within this high level specification
hull there is room for choice and clients can choose between Super Spars
or Selden for mast and boom depending on sailing weight.
This championship edition comes complete
with Milanes Scarf centreboard and a fixed Milanes EGS rudder with a
carbon tiller extension, flat breathable top cover a combination
launching trolley with astro turf cradles and tack tick bracket mounted
All boats leave the P&B warehouse with a

Cornish surf. Its 14ft hard chine planing hull is built to strict
