WTD: Merlin for Thamessailing
Hello, I am looking for an older (old?) narrow Merlin to sail on the Thames. Unfortunately, I don't have the skill or resources, or space to take on a restoration so I'm in the market for a boat that is ready-to-go. There were a few in the MR classifieds this time last year and I should have bought the one I went to look at!! My email is timothymedcalf (at sign) yahoo.co.uk Many thanks in advance, Tim
Hi Tim, Here's a thought.....A good Smokers or an NSM 1 or 2 will go well on the river plus you have the advantage of a little more power when there is a descent breeze and a boat that you could be competitive in at certain open water venues too when the wind isn't too strong. There looks to be some good examples on the second-hand board.. Dave
Hi Tim. I own MR 2979 a Fadeaway Satisfaction which has been at Cookham for most of its life. I was proposing to list it for sale in a couple of months as it is currently being wintered as usual in my garage under a rack supporting my Enterprise Dinghy. I have sent further details off group to your email address. Richard
