It's been on the for sale list for almost a year. Looks like she is going to need saving before the winter though.

She has deteriorated since I saw her last year. I hope someone from the vintage side buys her soon; class history and too good to let go.

I gather 7 has joined 6 and 16 and some slightly newer MRs at Shearwater. Number 8 would be very welcome too!

Pat, very kind offer, but I live a little too far away from the club for regular sailing there, however it would be good to get the boats together at some stage.

David please come and join us at CVRDA events then. The truly vintage Merlins (pre number 500) get a favourable handicap and you'll be sailing with others keen on the old boats. See the website for more details

Hi David, well done for saving her, I was tempted but have too many as it is. Are you looking to join a local club? We have a growing vintage fleet at Cookham with another 2 boats joining it this year and, time willing, I am about to start my restoration on 635 'Siesta'.

All I need now is my mast, Martin!

Come and join us, I would love to see No8 back on the river where she belongs.
