Ready to race and prepared to championship
winning standard. The Scorpion is now built by P&B 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,
adjustable padded toestraps. Cunningham led to either side for the helm
or crew, pole height led to either side, 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. 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 the prodder
kicker system or a 16:1 cascade system, spars from either Super Spars or
Selden and either twinning lines or lazy guys for the crew with ratchet
blocks fitted for the spinnaker sheets.
This championship edition comes complete
with a Milanes foils centreboard and a fixed or lifting carbon rudder
with a carbon tiller extension a padded rudder bag, full set of covers
(w/max flat cover and nylon u/c) a combination trailer and trolley and
tack tick bracket mounted and fitted.
All boats leave the P&B warehouse with a
full set of P&B sails measured and numbered.
Before leaving the warehouse the boat is
fully measured, tuned and calibrated to our proven fast settings and
comes with a comprehensive tuning guide.
The service does not stop there as we
actively race and sail the boat and are on hand at open events during

Cornish surf. Its 14ft hard chine planing hull is built to strict
measurements whilst rig controls and cockpit layout are left to personal

means that the Scorpion can be raced in most conditions. Its lightweight
