"That makes sense now! I think you also understand why I bring Calista home every time.  Chas and Mandy Hammond have kept Walrus in Mali Losinj (undercover in a shed at a marina) for the last 12 months.  I don't think there is a cheap…"

"Sorry you have totally confused me now! I am not sure how that works. Is a boat transport company bringing the boat back for you? How are you getting the holiday - or is the holiday totally separate? Fridge - bit confused there as well. It is a…"

"Alistair To answer your points in order: I think that the closer you can get the boat before you start to tow the better. After all sailing is more fun! Now it is interesting that "the tolls in France are considerable" - that isn't…"

Trevor Thompson replied to Fairey Mary's discussion Spinnaker halyard diameter
"I will measure my halyard in the morning. I think 6mm will be strong enough - the issue is handling it without pain! I think the idea of a light weight genoa is a good idea, particularly in the med. Hi There are two types of Atalanta masts…"

Trevor Thompson replied to Webmaster's discussion A46 Theodora - anyone know where she is now?
"Simon She has changed hands since then Simon. To the best of my knowledge she is still in the barn in Dorset. The (ex?)wife has the house where the couple used to live and the barn, and the (ex?)husband is living on a boat "up north". I…"

Trevor Thompson commented on Richard James's blog post Propellor sizes
"I am not sure that the three bladed propeller will make that much difference to the boat speed under power. It will probably cost you 1/2 to 1 knot under sail! However I think the big issue is the power taken to drive the hydraulic system itself.…"

Calista's Easter Cruise 2012

Calista took Dominic Dobson and myself on a cruise around the Milford Haven last week. Not actually Easter week, but the week after (Easter was early this year so it was still pretty early in the season)!

 

The weather was cold and windy throughout, and we spent most of the week with two deep reefs permanently in the mainsail, and very little of the genoa unrolled.

 

We managed to sail out of the Haven on the Monday to Skokholm Island and back, and on the Friday…

Hi Trevor

Finally sorted your friend invite. Having a day off and spending some of it working Ereina. Heard last night that the Harbour Master at Fishguard may be selling his Atalanta. Hope to go to Margam Boat Jumble on 21 October: do you want to go?

Pete
