Mark-Setting Barge and Marks
The Mark-Setting Barge is designed to be towed behind the T24 Classic Wooden Tug (above). Together with the Tug and racing marks (below), the barge allows for racing marks to be set as far out in the lake as you want, creating the perfect racing course. The retrieval line for each mark remains on shore, so the marks can be pulled back in to land after the racing is completed. The barge is very easy to build, and includes precut okume marine plywood parts, marine-grade epoxy, high-quality hardware, and a nylon tow line chord.
The Racing Marks are throwable (up to 30 yards) are can be carried along behind the T24 Classic Wooden Tug on the barge. The retrieval line for each mark stays on shore so the marks can be easily pulled in after racing. The marks have brightly colored flags of different colors, so it is easy to call out a course to sailors. The anchor weights and nylon anchor line allow for hassle-free mark setting. These marks are effective, festive, easy to use and are a great addition to any model boat regatta!
Mark-Setting Barge and Marks Kit. $115.
The racing marks can also be set by throwing them, dropping them from a dingy or from the Tug Barge above.
Racing Marks. $79.
