Welcome to the Scow and Lowriders page
There is a growing interest being shown in the Scow and Lowrider Moth designs, with many existing boats being restored and new boats being built.
Sailors with a history in Moths, and even sailors new to the Moth scene, are enjoying hitting the water again in social and racing events being held in most States.
If you are interested in joining us and having a blast, head over to the Facebook groups to have a chat. Boats for sale pop up often, and current builds and restorations can be followed. Keep an eye out for an event near you, drop down and say hi.
Get involved and don't miss out on the fun!
Our European friends are also getting amongst the action, see their website and facebook site here:
Scow and Lowrider Designs
One of the great aspects of the moth is that a perfectly competitive legal moth can be built at home with a few sheets of very thin plywood. As we find plans we will make them available here. We have found the mk2 plans from Len Morris and we have made them available here. New Scows are still being built and they are just as much a part of the moth class as the latest high tech foiler.
If you are wishing to build a scow or lowrider feel free to use one of the below designs. Or, contact us on Facebook and we will put you in contact with someone who can build one.
Tuning and Racing Tips
The following three historic IMCA magazines have been kindly scanned and provided for our viewing by Jim and David French. Each magazine contains tips on rigging setups, tuning the rig and sailing fast techniques. Also a great read, a wealth of knowledge from the masters, with many names you may recognise.
We have a limited list of historical sail numbers here. It is not perfect, and we cannot guarantee accuracy but it may have some information on the boat you found in an old shed. If you found one, we would love to hear about your journey in bringing her back to life.
A register is under constant development in Facebook land.
