So, if I sail at Clywedog in my Fairey Finn I get 3 times the coverage!

Superb read, thanks again David!

Unit and Ghost alongside the Jollyboat are my all time fantasy boats to own...I found (bought) a 'barn find' that I might try and put up for identification...cold moulded beauty that may just survive the neglect (for barn read farmyard, rotted cover...) and reputed to have been taken from a sixties 14...I'm a sucker for classics!
