Re: Senior Owner in Canada

Hi Mat, Regarding you having had both versions of the Senior. Does the centre plate sail much better than the centre ballast + Bilge keels one? And where your bilge keels plywood or steel?

Re: YM Senior - Painting around steel keels

Hi Keith, Thank you for your reply. Yes, I already have my coppercoat and I bought directly from the company you bought too. I did get in touch with Geoffrey (the initial owner) and asked his advise which was the same as yours, so that's what I will be doing. I did write an email before buying the c...

YM Senior - Painting around steel keels

Hi All, So I am in the process of painting the hull and applying copper coat to it. I have already sanded down to bare wood and was very happy to see that apart from some small areas that seemed to already have been treated before, there was no visible signs of rot damage. I have not taped over the ...

Re: YM senior - hull painting and others

Hi Keith, Your comment is actually very interesting to me. I did have a look at coppercoat and moved await from it as I was not 100% sure of its efficacy plus the application process kind of led me to look for other options.

YM senior - hull painting and others

Hello, I am preparing to do maintenance works to the hull of Mikros (YM senior 1967). Because I bought it last August I am thinking of doing a sort of ''reset'' to the hull finish. I read online that marine plywood has a life expectancy up to 25 years. That is interesting as Mikros has 54 years alre...

Set of sails for a YM Senior

Hello Everyone, So I had a great time last year learning to sail my newly bough YM senior MIKROS from 1967. In the meantime I got in touch with Geoffrey Hyde Fynn, who is the original owner and son of the builder, and have learned much from him regarding rigging and maintenance. One thing he told me...
