"Thanks for the pictures David Mike I am sure I will have 1 million and 1 questions at some point! I will be sure to float them across. I will try and get to you Stephen and George so I can get a view of a slightly different configured Titania."

Keith spent about 4 years getting her up together after she spent much time sitting on the harbour wall in Castletown Harbour IOM. So with much reluctance Keith has passed ownership to myself.

Winter Storage for Brother Jack

HiI have just recently bought Brother Jack (T4)from Keith Shawcross on the IOM.We are set to take her out of the water early September for quayside storage for the winter.I had a good discussion with a guy whoworked for Fairey building the Firefly's and kitting out the Atalanta's. Anyway I digress, my main enquiry is what is the best way to sheet her down for the winter so as to ensure I dont come arrive back to a pile of mushrooms.Many ThanksPaulSee More

Sail number (if a boat owner)
T4 just finalising sale with Keith
Please tell us about your interest in the Atalanta
I have seen one for sail and I like the fact they are not a usual looking boat. I am planning it will be a project boat for me and my wife to work on.
