Our Sadler 34

No Longer "The Project" but Working Well!

Cuchulainn on her Mooring at Cargreen

Our Sadler 34, Cuchulainn, was launched for the first time after our purchase on Fri 18 Jul 14.
She started as a "WRECK" became a "PROJECT" in 2014 and is now a solid working sailboat!
More is on the blog under that date in the Archive.
In 2015, we sailed to North Brittany, but went "around the corner" to meet up with our son's family and sailing friends.

Over 2015/16 winter, Cuchulainn was in a shed at Boating World while we removed every peice off the deck, ground back the rubbish paint and some of the rubbish gelcoat. The next phase was filling all the holes and stuff that was left to create a fair surface for 3 coats of epoxy paint, followed by 4 coats of 2-pack polyurethane paint plus a final layer of non-slip granules added to the paint.

Now, she is back on the water.

In 2016, we managed local sailing and our hopes for sailing further were dashed by circumstances; they included the weather and family events.

In 2018, we are planning to sail to the North coast of France.

However, there was a significant event that curtailed our sailing which did not warrent a blog entry! Again!

We are now in 2019 and hope to begin our sailing for a month or so. Everything that we done is on our blog: so please follow this link to get there.
