Peter Martin phoned to say that with great regret he is selling A92 Sea Major, as he finds it increasingly difficult to handle her on his own. Peter has owned Sea Major for 40+ years, and last sailed her only a couple of years ago. He says she just needs a fresh coat of paint.

New galvanised trailer

Atalanta 26 for sale on eBay

Seven days to go at 9th January 2015

Judging by the stub extension below the keelboxes, I believe this to be A137 Baby Seal, based near York. Too bad about the foredeck. The splendid 6-wheel trailer we saw at Carsington in 2010 found another home.

Hi John,

Hope it's a good sailing season on the other side of the pond, I'll be afloat but 

not on the Goose this year.  I'll post some key restoration steps using the blog

format as they are completed. Btw, is it you that makes plan copies upon request?

There were a few photo's in the Sailing Today article for Jaunty - if there is there a way to upload one of those I could use that instead.

Hello John - feels good to be legal - mugshot uploaded as requested - look forward to further details

John, I have had a quick play, and think the site is quite intuitive and easy to navigate, I like how easy it is to add pics, and its neat having a personal page too! I like it. It may be frustrating to some who have just got used to using the old site, but I think this one is easy enough to get the hang of....Good work!
At 17:37 on February 1, 2011, murray reid said…
It will take a bit of getting used too, but could be good, can you transfer the other site over? it would be a shame to loose that, or would we have 2 sites?
