New sails needed

Hi all, it is with great sadness that I must say that I am selling my Eventide 24. It is too big a project for me so I'm selling it on. The last owner said he used to sail it around but I dont think he ever did, it hasn't been used for about 3-4 years. The sails are FUBAR'd and I dont know what the ...

How heavy?

Hi all, just wondering about how heavy my E24 is. I saw a picture of one on a trailer and just wondered as to the weight for towing purposes. I know they will all be different due to fixtures, fittings and fit out, but there must be a ball park figure. Anyone? Thanks, Dave.

Re: eventide 24

She is ply and yes her only power is an outboard, which is inoperative at the mo. Its a 30 hp Yamaha and I am trying to find an operators handbook to see if there is anything that is stopping it running, like a safety clip or something. I think the hull is quite sound, or at least its not about to c...

Re: eventide 24

Ah found them. Yes that is the Redwing I now own and she is still looking pretty much the same though slightly worse. I dont think she has been touched since those photos were taken. The crap paint job inside is still exactly the same. I wonder if there is any way of contacting the previous previous...

Previous owner came up as George T? in Bristol 1980. I really would like to keep her and get her saili...

Re: eventide 24

Hi, I am the new owner of an E24 called Redwing, don't know if anyone else knows it (besides EOG). I eventually got chance to get aboard her yesterday and was quite disappointed and excited at the same time. She is in a very tired looking state, all flaky and patchy paint, rusty steel work and some ...

renaming

Hi, I am just wondering if anyone can tell me the correct Naval etiquette for renaming a vessel. I know that if a vessel sinks and there is loss of life, she has to be renamed if she is salvaged and reused ( superstitious sailors), but not sure about just renaming for the sake of it. Cheers, Dave
