Ooo that is interesting. The guys in Plymouth said that he, or possibly his Dad, had been down with it some time back. I would like to see it, although I am not sure why.

I am impressed by how well they last. While ‘Arboreal’ has had a good number of bits changed, the hull (and mast of course – now ready for collection and back in one piece) is still the original 1962 wood. I may have to replace the Transom next winter though by the look of things, and then there is that leaking centre box…
