Re: Down to one boat... each... plus a spare

A few years ago we have a Wanderer (a club boat) parked next to a Leader. The owner of the leader found his boat being used by club members who had mistaken it for the Wanderer:0)

The lark would be good, you could take the jib off, rake the plate back a bit and as long as you could get the rig tension to put a bit of pre bend in the mast it would it would go fine.

Re: Back in the boat park.

Loveley pics, takes me back a while...How are you doing the jib sheets? Mine went to the end of the seat so when you tacked the seat the jib sheet was partly tensioned as well and then you did the rest from the seat after the tack.

Re: Single Hander

Hi Alan

I've been in contact but they don't know really what I'm talking about, so can you tell me where it is in the pound and any identifying features?

Re: Single Hander

Thanks, that seems hopeful,

I didn't want another telegraph pole mast, so softer seems good.

Re roping and repairing would be no problem. I'll contact them.

Only seen the hull, CB, boom. Someone has screwed rubber door stops to the gunwales for the trapeze crew. Bright yellow deck and ...
