Lello 34 and Ted Brewer 45

hello, I have recently began looking for any news of two boats on which I and my family cruised many miles from 1979 to 2002. It would be so nice to share photos and stories. Both boats were registered in South Africa.
The first boat was "Vemvaan" a Lello 34 - yellow hull fibreglass sloop. I see there are quite a few Lello 34's still around.
The second was "Precious Mettle" a Ted Brewer 46ft cutter - unpainted.

Re: Lello 34 and Ted Brewer 45

Hi, the only yellow Lello 34 I know of is S/V Faithfull. Neree Cornuz (Lello Owners Facebook group) will know where in the world she is. I have a photo of her, e-mail me skippervaliant@gmail.com and I'll mail you the photo. I would appreciate photo's / stories / dates etc of S/V Vemvaan.

I can't help with info on the boats, but we had dinner with you on Vemvaan in Anacortes, WA back in the late 80's, while you were building Precious Mettle. Is this Gillian or Robin?
