Hi All

Good to be aboard such an interesting and helpful site .
I have a 10 Mtr. Hedley Nichol cat. which started out as a boat repair but soon developed into a full-blown restoration and modification , guess this sounds all too familiar .
Have just purchased a heap of rigging and steering gear for a
Crowther Buccaneer 28Tri. if anyone is interested .
Cheers , Jezza

Aloha Jezza,
Good to have another sailor aboard wanting to restore a boat. I'm doing a long term reconstruct that keeps getting interrupted with other things.
Kind Regards,
JohnL

We were at about 16 C today, cool and sunny, spring is on the way and I am getting tired of working on the boat. Time to start sailing her.

Good luck selling the extra bits. Do you have eBay. Just sold a bow roller for more than I thought I would get. Hope the buyer is not on the forum.

George
