Hi Chris, now I know who you are, and of course we have pictures of you! I noted there was no bowsprit and extra headsails... I bet that changes in time! When you change the name let us know, because we have just made sure she was correctly names Rose of Holcroft on the Database, there was some disc...

Hello again Eddie, I know I have replied at length to your e-mail, but here the reply can be seen by all! The first thing is to say welcome of course! And yes we have your registration. I see she only draws 700mm. I guess she needs a little more ballast and grip on the water. My own wooden Eventide ...

Protecting Steel underwater.

I have just removed all the old antifouling and epoxy from my bilge keels. Or at least my crew has and I helped! After 15 year of patching up every season I thought it time to strip it all off and start again. Imagine my surprise to find the Galvanising as good as the day we first coated it, about 1...

Website Coordinator away for a week

Hello folks, John and Darian and crew are off on Inland Waterways for a week, 'winding down' as they say!

We will be away as of Tuesday 28th, back a week later. Hopefully the Forum will have a load more registrants by then!

Look after the site for me,

John

Hello there? What size Stuart do you have in it at the moment? I can imagine it could be either a 4 or an 8 (5 or 10)! The little single was only just man enough in a calm and I would have thought an 8 or 9 hp replacement would be the most suitable, depending on how much room you have without magor ...

The 1000th picture on the site!

After a week of waiting, and several false alarms as pics were sent in that we already had, Alan Lyttle has sent this photo of Borer Bee in! He believes she is somewhere on the upper Thames, but is not certain.. She is now in Northern Ireland undergoing a refit. How apt thet one of the most famous ...

Could not agree more Chris.

Soon we will be able to let restorers and owners see almost every one of our boats drawings! As it should be!

Hello Paul, never worked on a Senior that way, but I have added a skeg to a Lysander with good results, years ago. The boat tended to tilt back on it's keels if you put too much weight aft, so the owner asked me to help. We made up a galvanised Steel skeg, through bolted under the stern, just in fro...

Hi Michael. Do we know what the Antifouling is? You say it is good order, (on the phone), no cracks or flakes. If it is in good order, and a copper based paint, then a rub over with a rag with suitable thinners for it should enable a coat of similar paint over the top. Otherwise you might have to us...

Should I scrape off the antifouling?

Hi John, Got a question. The Lady Anne had new antifoul paint and the rest of the hull striipped down and repainted in about Nov 2004. She has not been back in the water since and the anti fouling seems to be in good order with no cracking or peeling. I am going to strip the rest of the hull to repa...

Hello Pete, Interesting query, have no clue! Is it as you say that the rigging has stretched, if so can you tighten it, or has a swage fitting slipped? I guess the only people who can really answer this are going to be Rotostay... My much cheaper Plastimo gear is very different. I will copy and past...

Rotostay reefing problem

Hello John, My 1965 Golden Hind 31, Sari-Rose is fitted with a rotostay E headsail furling system. The SS forestay inside the ali extrusion seems a bit stretched. i.e. the ss 'pin' at the top end is poking out a bit, almost exposing the ss rigging to the top edge. Has anyone got an exploded diagram ...
