Hi Folks, Pete and I are looking to possibly borrow a Winder one string if one is avalable for the Inlands. Reason for going after a one string is that Pete has only sailed 3647 - Nationals 2007 (8th)and we want to keep it simple for the both of us. So if someone would like to lend us a ship, we will do our best to return it in as good or better condition than we borrowed it.
Await your replies with interest.
Bye for now

Would love to borrow Shaka Zulu if available. Next thing would be to get someone to tow it to QMSC for us. Any volunteers as we are South of London. Await replies with interest.
Bye for now.

Some of us had to buy new Merlins for lots of money and would not dream of borrowing someone elses boat.........and now you want it towed there as well!!!!!
Well done with the B14, why not sell that and get full time in the Merlin fleet.
See you at QM in my own boat!

AS much as I love the Merlin, I happen to be one of the 2 key people behind the rebuilding of the B14 Class Association and am currently committed to seeing that through and will be keeping the boat. In the near future we will be buying a MR but not till next winter (2008) as I have a house to build (bottomless pit of money if not careful). Once we have done that, then Pete and I will be in a position to hopefully buy a boat. Also the advantage of borrowing a MK4 and Believe Shaka Zulu is a MK5, will give us direct insite into the variations of the Winder and let us draw up our own conclusions. On another note, Think Heywel was very pleased with the state of his boat when we returned it. Next open he should be going a lot faster.
Hope to see you at QMSC if we can get it all together.
Bye for now

Hey maybe I should lend you my boat! A little bit of tuning may be required if you have 5mins at QM.

Yes I was,
Mark really gave the boat a proper service and I would hapilly lend it to him again if I wasn't going to use it.
Hope you find a boat mark.

cant tow it myself as I will bringing 3379 which is much better wooden boat than 3680. So volunteer required for Barnsie.

The mind boggles as to what happens when Barnsie services your boat ... what does he actually do???
Posted: 04/09/2007 10:38:21
Does this servicng involve a slight buzzing in the front bouyancy tanks?!
