Re: Any interest in a long distance river race as a CVRDA op

Re: Repainting Fibreglass? ToY 76

Found a reasonable compromise I think.

thanksfully I happen to know a very competent boat builder who can help me give the boat a thorough MOT this winter!!

Tony Allen and the TOY dinghy

Having just brought home Nessa's TOY dinghy, I wanted to find out more about it. I sent an email to the MD at Allen fittings who passed it on to Tony Allen, who sent me a delightful email explaining how it all came about. Here's Tony's Story which could perhaps be used to update the TOy page on the ...
