Welcome to the UKWA Home Page Forums General New wayfarer Re: I hope I am wrong!


Looking for a retirement present to myself, I could hadly wait to see the new model at the dinghy show.

I was disapointed to find the cruising version wasnt there.

Time was clearly a problem and the boat on display, had rather obviously been cobbled together.

The earlier promise of properly jigged manufacture helpled me to keep faith.

My main concern however was the flexibility of the hull, which appeared to be very thin indeed compared to my much older version.

I would like to be clear in that I am not by any means an expert in boat building and maybe people here can help alay my fears, but this boat gave me the impression of being rather flimsy compared to my 79 model.

My cheque book remains in my pocket, in the hope that time will sort these matters out.
