Re: buccaneer history

Sorry John, mixing up names... If you mail me at enquiries@eventides.org.uk I will send you scans of a magazine form the 1990'a where vic Maynard tells some of the history of Buccaneer. We have a lot of nice boats that cannot sell at the moment, no one has time, effort, or money for wooden boats it ...

Re: Golden Hind restoration

I would agree with Chris about epoxy and new build and also that you would have to be very careful not to epoxy in trouble on older boats. All has to be scrupulously clean and rot free! As for designing out problems.. Seems to me that most rot problems are associated with leaking decks, so properly ...

Re: Athaena - Foredeck repairs

Looks a real 'proper job!' Well done, still struggling here to get Fiddler's Green ready for the water, lots of silly delays this year, but as the weather has not been up to much so far, I do not think I've missed anything! Your restoration is going to make a good page for the Newsletter! Regards, J...

Hello Chris, this all looks very well done. At the speed I'm going this year you will be afloat before me!

Any chance of sending all those pics and the text to me as jpgs and word text, so I can include the lot in the next newsletter?

Re: Almost all the YM designs

Just checked all the CD's listed against the designs on the specs page. I am assuming that if you are interested in a particular design you would look at the specs page.... As for boat tests, we can only print what we have and do not have actual comparison tests, nor sail tests for the Barrier Reef ...

Re: Almost all the YM designs

Good ideas Steve, but I thought that was exactly what is on the designs page??? and the specs page?? That also lists the CD's..... I will have to look to see if any of what you suggest is missing, but from memory it is all there. Down to descriptions of every design, I think I wrote most of them! If...

Re: Athaena - Foredeck repairs

Hi Chris,

given the amount of work involved in removing all that I guess you have opted for the best option. Bet it lasts for years and years and will be darned strong too.

At this rate you will be afloat in time for Easter!
