Thanks for the welcome!
We got our first old Merlin (2967) last year to introduce our 6 year old girls to proper sailing! So we moved up to the Isle of Mull for 3 months in the Spring this year for waves and tide. Having sailed one designs for decades, I have to say how refreshing it was to sail such a remarkably refined and well developed boat in the sea. 
So flushed with success, we are shipping the boat (after 2 months of renovation (sigh)) to Wexford Harbour in Ireland to introduce our nephews and anyone else who comes along to the delights of Merlin sailing!
And  . . . we just bought 3482 for pootling on the Thames on Thursday afternoons when it’s not raining. 
And another thing, the standard of craftsmanship in these boats is absolutely breathtaking, they are so beautifully built!
