Jollyboat Equipment - 1950's? trailer, cotton sails, Reynolds mast, boom

[img][ DSCF0735.JPG /img] Prompted by an likely trip south to the Hampshire / Sussex area with an empty tempest trailer, on which the Jollyboat trailer (which is roadworthy - just torture to tow empty) could get a lift on. All of the below acquired with Jollyboats in the EISCA auction in 2017. Trail...

Re: Graham Cockle auctions

In the EISCA auction the Finn sold for £150 (so £207ish probably after VAT, buyers premium etc), according to the then auctioneers website. Saw it briefly in a shed in Eyemouth.

Re: Roll up, roll up, buy an entire museum collection

Enterprise 1 was bought by NMM Falmouth. Saw it in the shed when I was visiting the GRP prototype tempest.

Fittings - Antique & less so

CVRDA copy.JPG Above are various 'lots' of fittings which will head on to ebay in a week, all as auctions starting at 99p. They are mainly the surplus of fittings that came with Jollyboats, and the results of scrapping dead Flying 15's & Tempests. Plenty of worn/broken stuff gone to the skip too. M...

Re: Vintage Int 14 sails - what to do?

Now got the sails on loan, so I can photograph them at the weekend. There are 3 sets of mains & jibs and 2 spinnakers. If you want me to send photos to you email me on protem at Hotmail.co.uk. Thanks

Vintage Int 14 sails - what to do?

Whilst acquiring a Project Flying 15 for a friend, the seller was going to include 3 sets of International 14 sails. In fairness I separated them and suggested he was better selling them separately, as he knew the history, and there were still vintage I14's out there being sailed. I was then asked h...

EISCA Boat, back on the water where it belongs

J71 Sailing.JPG Still much to do, but after some essentials, carefully sailable. Whilst I think 70 or more of the 90 EISCA sailing dinghies should never have been collected, we should thank the people connected with the EISCA in Eyemouth, Lowestoft, and Cardiff for their time and effort, in attempt...
