Over the past few years, we’ve had less and less time available to go sailing. Very sadly, we put the boat up for sale with Boatshed Plymouth (https://plymouth.boatshed.com/). Surprisingly quickly, the boat was sold and this is the last entry on this blog.
However, we are going to be downsizing back to a dinghy. The Skipper will be building a plywood lapstrake gaff rigged cutter around 15 to 16 ft long from the designer Francois Vivier (http://www.vivierboats.com/en/), the favoured boat is an Ebihen 16 (http://www.vivierboats.com/en/product/ebihen-16-clinker/)
I started a new blog (https://yottienick.wordpress.com/) that will describe the build.
Many thanks to the many people who have helped with the refurbishment of the Sadler, in particular, Vyv Cox (http://coxeng.co.uk/) who owns a Sadler 34 himself and is very knowledgable.
