Greetings From Glasgow, Scotland

Hello, just purchased a wee Matilda 20 trailer sailer. Got it for a kiss and a cuddle on fleabay, and she needs very little to get her sailing.
we plan on doing as little as possible to tart her up for next summer, and instead we will concentrate on using her and then dress her up according to our needs acquired from using her.

the biggest jobs are to replace the standing and running rigging. new windows, they are basic and really wee so its a weekend job to do it right. new cushions and the job i look forward to the least, is new center board guides.

Re: Greetings From Glasgow, Scotland

Welcome aboard. Sounds like a good plan on the boat. Sail her to see what she really wants then address those concerns.
