Varnish

I have just completed the decks of my National 18 with the own brand screwfix yacht varnish and am very pleased with the result. I was getting just over two coats per tin so it is very economical. I tried the own brand varnish remover too which had good reviews but did not work as well as nitromors....

Re: Birkett Memorial Trophy

I have not done the event though would like to. Having sailed a classic 14 with Chris at Hunts this year I would say the scenario you describe is not ideal. As has been suggested I would go for a more modern and perhaps comfortable design the first time.

Re: Merlin PYs...

Tricky. My own experience with the Jollyboat was fairly easy as there was no existing PY to use.

Re: Fairy Albacore for sale

I have not sailed an Osprey so cannot compare and contrast. However, I would have said that all the qualities you attribute to the Osprey I would say apply to the Jollyboat. I like the lines of the Osprey and the FD too but in my opinion the Jollyboat that Andrew is selling is a lot more boat for yo...

Re: Fairy Albacore for sale

The Jollyboat that Andrew is selling is excellent and you will get an awful lot more for your money than with an Osprey or FD.
