Re: Looking for Pampero of Hamble

Great to see the forum being used this way!

An Eventide 24 weighs in at 2 tons max, early ones with lighter keel and smaller motors 1.5 tons. You can hire trailers or drop i...

Re: Sailing characteristics Golden Hind

The same goes for the Eventide, if conditions are really choppy, backing the head sail or in real extremis, putting the motor on, but that I have only done once or twice because I was close to a sand bank and dare not bear away! Agree with the 15 degrees of heel too, MG told me the Eventide should n...

SPAM

Sorry folks but the forum has had to be partially disabled to prevent the mindless Spammers covering it in rubbish. We had been hit with dozens of false registrations purporting to come from Russia etc but from anonymous IP addresses in reality, and inviting all to buy watches and other less tastefu...

Re: Wooden fender trim for GH

Hello Gary, The gunwhale was either Teak or maybe Afromosia and would look best in that timber, plastic fendering just looks tacky on proper boats! If you have a problem bending it into place get hold of half thickness timber and put 2 layers on, glueing together with epoxy, much stronger and easier...

Re: YM E399 - 24ft Eventide -Trying to find her again

Hello Ray, I have found her under the name Omrod and a reference to an advert in a 1996 magazine For Sale in Maylandsea, Essex. Any offers to a Brian Cox with a tele number, in Cambridgeshire! mail me at enquiries@eventides.org.uk if you want to try the number! Seems she was in a dire state then hav...

Re: Silverhow - Where has she been?

thinking about this one, the dates are often the launch dates, if a boat was sold for home fitting out the actual launch date may have been a few years down the line, which may explain the discrepancies.

Hope by now the drawings have been examines in depth.

Good luck with the project, she would not be the first Waterwitch to sail round the world, but maybe the first Finnish one!

Re: Performance of golden hind without bilge keels ?

Look at the other post re bilge keels They are not just there to assist drying out I can assure you. If you remove them be prepared to add weight internally at least 500lb and to accept the increased rolling and lessened windward ability. If you really want to go for speed, remove bilge plates and m...

Re: Fuel tank modification needed?

The problem you will get with a half full tank will be condensation. When you run the motor the bleed back is hot, heating the tank, any air above the fuel in the tank will have water in it and now being warm will condense its water content against the sides of the tank, as they are cooler. That wat...
