If you want to chat Merlins there will be over a hundred near you next week! Pop down during the day/evening if you want to have a chat with many of the knowledgeable sailors that will be around.
Hi, I think that Tumbler originally belonged to the late,great David Robinson. When I knew her at Upper Thames, she belonged to Richard Bridgeman. It did have a traveler(Proctor) and Banks Sails. And she had a glass fibre hull that moved when the boat planed!
Can find no record of David Robinson owning her. Looks like Richard Bridgeman was original owner according to 69 Year Book. She is a IXb in GRP by Bob Hoare. You should have no problem in sourcing a second hand spinnaker.
