What a lucky girl! If only there were a Phil for every abandoned-yet-perfectly-good-floating-on-a-mooring-somewhere boat!

I think he has turned it down although for the life of me I can't understand why. Couple of years spent with bleach, sand paper and paint should have her spruced up

May be he has been traumatised in a previous life painting grey funnel ships.

re: MacWester 26 and the "hina"ous crew

Hey now that is a good result. Be interesting to hear of the voyage to Falmouth in her.

You will need a pipe and some St Bruno pipe tobacco to sail a gaffer though

To much work and nowhere to put her thats free/cheap while I fixed her up..
I'm still 1/2way through the Corribee...
If I'd been in Atolls place... just down the coast... maybe..
But she is a lot of work...
