Walker Knotmaster log? anyone seen one for sale recently?

I sold a Walker Knotmaster Giant for about $1000.00 a long time ago when I wasn't sailing. Now that I'm back in the hobby of collecting strange and useful nautical items, I could kick myself in the junk for selling it.

Now I'm looking for another one. Anyone know of a good place besides egay to find one? I hate that website.


thanks,

Robert

Sapperwhite posted photos of his a couple of weeks ago. He'd be the captain to ask.

E-bay is a good place to look for a log. But are you sure you want the Knotmaster? The Walker MK IV is a better log and without question more accurate. Also itís less likely to have the fish eaten by passing critters.
All the best,

Study the history of naval architecture and move forward knowing what didnít work before.

Donít waste time making the same old mistakes but instead make new ones and to insure your place in history be sure the mistakes are big ones.

Never design a mast that is weaker then the boat

Never listen to someone describe why your project will not work unless they can show you the broken pieces of their own version.

Happened to notice they had an old log at Minney's last time I was in, didn't look closely enough at it to tell what kind, give them a call.

Why is that?

I see so many on ebya, the Knotmaster, Mk III, KDO, KDS, Trident, Cherub, Excelsior, etc. Is there a place to find descriptions of the differences?

I have a Seamaster III cathode log on my old boat. It still works perfectly, and it's from 1974. I scavenged one from the garbage at the club in case I ever have to do emergency surgery!

Also try here. They didn't have what I needed at the time I was looking, but that may have changed.
