Merlin Rocket no8 on ebay
It's on ebay link below. Looks in original format to me.
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.
No 8 saved
well done; I hear 7 has been resurrected too!
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
Where abouts are you based, our Vintage racing events move to many parts of the country, I am sure that we will have some near you
I am based Nr Windsor. Cookham and Hampton are both fairly close to me.
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'.
Jez, thanks for offer however I am a member of too many clubs as it is.
Where is she going to be based then?
