Fireball 11042 £250

https://drive.google.com/uc?export=download&id=1vbTaBgyika6JZ1BME19sOpKNDeAZ2_Qb This is a classic wooden fireball that has many new parts. Including a fairly new and crisp job as well as new sheets and control lines barely used. It is a reluctant sale, but with owning too many boats and a youn...

Hatch Size

We have an odd shaped hatch that was attached to the Fireball, unfortunatally in removing it, it broke in two. Went to buy a new one yesterday, and seems as it was made in BC they only do one a bit smaller and one a bit larger. No room to cut out for larger one, so stuck with slightly smaller one! M...

Plastic Extrusions (I think that's what its called)

Well started on the Hull this week. (Drove 300 miles to get some warm weather first!) This is the first time I have had a good look at the bottom, and good news it is sound, however the protective strip that runs along 2 protruding edges has been damaged. So |I have removed all of this, sanded and p...
