Re: Down to one boat......

The ideal boat is a Hornet, extra long tiller and you can sail single handed from the sliding seat, plenty of room for a crew and symmetric spinnaker. :lol: :lol: :roll: Funnily enough I have one which with a "bit" of winter maintenance will be the perfect steed. Seriously though, I used to single h...

Nope I couldn't get on with it either. Mind you I don't seem to b able to get on with any single handers. Maybe I`m just a sociable guy.

Re: Down to one boat......

Nice 14ft Clinker Lymington pram in my dads garden. Its a serious project though. Dad would love to see her go to a good home. Mast sails etc all there but the hull is a bit of a sorry state.

She is a bit weighty though.

Re: Anyone planning going to Bosham?

I`m afraid I have pulled out Michael, I have never floated this particular boat and don't think Bosham would be the right place for the old lady to sink or lose the mast. I am going to have to find a puddle to play on first I think. I agree its a great event but you do need a seaworthy boat and taki...

Re: Newbie GP14 Restoration

Ok I will be honest with you. Your boat is in a bit of a mess. The more you dig the more problems you will find. I think you have a seriously big project on your hands. It will take months and you will probably end up replacing a huge amount of the boat. If the frames are ok then it will be nearly a...

Re: Anyone planning going to Bosham?

I am debating which boat to take at the moment. Hugh(brother) is in so may take 353 which has a more up to date rig so swimming activities will quite likely happen or 610 which I took last year. Hugh is afraid of breaking Shoestring so she will be staying in the shed. There may be a boat for lend Ed...

Re: It's not an Enterprise... but what is it??

Optimistic at £300. I watched it drift past first time round and he had it listed at £500! Sure the world loves an optimist but come on... minor damage? easily repaired?,,, low cost?? No mention of any spars and didn't care about the village in Scotland bit. I`m afraid we have become a bit jaded ov...

Re: Trophies Return

Does John Andrews still have the wingnut? He did have it last time we did a search and was going to pass it to Rupert. Do you still have it John?
