Hi Phil - saw Pintail last Sunday from the Truro-Falmouth ferry when we were coming back from Trellisick - the Mirror Offshore looked to be sailing very well, despite a strongish Easterly breeze coming across Carrick Roads. Hope you have lots of fun in her - John
i think to make your MO faster you can use a bigger jib
The make them by Jeckels sail
Tthe cruising chute with sack (genacker) is a good idea. Is easyer then a real spinacker
I use a old spinacker of a FJ with a pool
lot of information on google aske differance og spinacker,genacker
Good sailing herman MO 195
Hi I have just inherited a mirror offshore sail number"15" pintail my wife and I are in the throws of renovating her( throwing money in the sea seemed a little harsh!!) we are thinking of putting a cruising chute and sock and wondered if there was any advice that could be offered.... Many thanks
After some searching about my mirror offshore I found this guestbook. In may I bought the boat John is talking about in march earlier this year.
I have bought it for 700 euro's and have sailed it to Lauwersoog, Netherlands. The previous owner didn't know what boat it was, and I was really excited when I found out is was an original Van der stadt. This winter it really needs some maintainance, but she will sail as long the old motor will keep running and the sails wont crack. If you have some tips, I really like to know them.
Wish I could find a mirror for sale in my corner of the woods - where the River Plate meets the South Atlantic.
I saw a mirror offshore for sale. I think quite cheap. As a follower of Keep turning left, I like to see her going to an enthusiast. so thought I'd bring her to the attention. The owner asks 850 euro’s. I think is 741.35 British pounds.
search Marktplaats.nl. with > zeilboot 6.10 bij 2.15
it seems, the owner does not know what kind of a boat it is.
my boot is called freddy the fish i bought just a new red sail from jeckels nr 295 but i have still tos fix the volvol pente md1

Hi. My Mirror is in Kilifi - Kenya and one of the keels is rusting badly caused by the salt of the Indian Ocean.
Can somebody tell me how the keels are fixed in the body?
Maybe Cees van Tongeren of Van der Stadt Design?
Thks for yr answer.
Hi Mark the total weight with engine and trailer is about 2.5 tons hope this will help you
The weight of the Mirror is 1000 KG
The weight of the Volvo Penta MD1 is 130 Kg
I do not know the weight of your trailer
hi There,do you happen to know the all out weight of a mirror offshore MK1 long keel with original trailer
sites are very good times have changed. your site is one of them. success and showed great care.
I am not too sure if you received my previous message. I was asking if you by eny chance know somebody who would like to sell their Mirror. The one which I found is in some considerable trouble and getting it here to France from UK is becoming too convoluted.
I got this question before I send you my correspondence about the weight
I also asked van de Stadt designs weight Mirror Offshore inclusive VOLVO PENTA MD1
Het ontwerpgewicht van de Mirror Offshore is ongeveer 1000 kg.
Met vriendelijke groet,
Van de Stadt Design
