    Where do you have to get her to?  If she is / can be made in sailing trim, I am sure a few crew could be found.   Hope I would be available to do a leg.

    Hi Mark,

    Thanks for the offer but she needs a fair bit of work yet before she's ready to get wet again. I'm intending to get her transported to Titchmarsh marina by road so that I can spend some weekends working on her on the hard. 

    It would be great to do the work up in Ardrossan and sail her down but even if I could get a month off work I don't think I'd be able to get it all done in time.

    Given the transport prices I suppose I could spend the money getting the work done for me up there and then sail her down but I've not sailed in over a decade and would have to hire a skipper.

    It's an interesting thought though. It would be a good way to meeting interested JRA members involved on a sailing leg or two and get my sailing confidence up.

    I'll speak to Jerry and see if he knows anyone he'd trust to do the work up in Ardrossan but I suspect the road transport option followed by me doing the work on the hard in Walton on the Naze will prove the best option.

    I'll let you know - thanks

    Hi everyone,


    I just thought I'd send a gloating message to let you all know I've got Seaweed down at titchmarsh marina and saw her for the first time today.

    She is clearly the loveliest boat in the marina and I am extremely pleased and perhaps a little smug. Imagine a cat with a secret supply of cream.

    Thank you Bill - I do hope so, though the staff at Titchmarsh seem to think I'll be using it as a caravan since it has no engine
