"Hello all, I believe I may have an original Atalanta trailer. Does anyone know if the hitch is the old imperial 2 inch or the newer 50mm"

Please tell us about your interest in the Atalanta
Have just completed the purchase of Atalanta Solone A61 , previously owned by Kieth Viewing who owned her for 20 years. I'm a furniture maker in the south of France who has a love of wooden boats. A trail able yacht is ideal for me here as mooring fees are sky high. Plus I can park her right outside my workshop for any maintenance and repairs.
Looking forward to being part of the Aoa , and keeping you up to date on my adventures to come.

The madness has paid off

Firstly I would like to introduce myself to the members of AOA.  My name is Simon and I am the proud new owner of yacht Solone.

Back in May I began negotiations to buy an Atalanta Solone, some of you may have seen her advertised here on the AOA for sale page.  Well I did what everyone tells you not to do , purchased her in full without even seeing her. Its not the first time I have done this and I can honestly say its payed off for me on both occasions.

Many congratulations Simon.  Delighted to hear that you have taken on "Solone" - I'm sure you won't regret the decision!

Excellent news Simon and welcome to the Association.

Your setup sounds great. Do you take commissions for Atalanta repairs?  ;-)
