Twenty five years ago I was regularly going over to Gosport after work and having my evening meal aboard this very boat.

Does it have to be a CVRDA cat? If not, you could do a lot worse than a Sprint15(Dart15) Their attraction for me is their versatility.

Well, it's happened yet again (3 summers running). We'll be away on our hols over this weekend. Really would like to come to this one.The OK is fully seaworthy, of course, and with parking/sleeping for the old VDub camper on site it would have been a great weekend. Maybe next year.

Oh dear Rupert.
you should have stuck with that idea of yours to give an OK a good home and now you would'nt have been in this spot.
