I couldn't help but think what a role model you are for those of us who only go out when the weather is just so, the phase of the moon just right and there is no footbal on the tv. And then you go a sell out and what; leave your poor slug on some god forsaken hardpack to pine and waste away?
For Shame!
But congratulations anyway,

sticking with the slug for a few months yet

the slug still has a summer of sailing ahead of it

going to go up the humber - a roughish sort of place

the Minstrel needs some work on it

I am only dumping the slug because of the engine - it still runs but is stuck in forwards - I can live with that but it has cost me so much money and time over the past five years

the new boat has an outboard well and ebay is full of great second hand outboards that can be slotted into place in seconds

people were complaining about too many films about fixing engines

and I had some of the most miserable moments of my short life staring down that hatch wondering how I am going to fix the sucker

one of the mags over here has also decided that the Minstrel will be a great boat to use for tests compaing 5 hp saildrive outboards and as it has both a bermudan and gunter rig that would also make a great item

the fact that I can tow it to their base in Poole for the tests is also an advantage

I love the slug - it has been great

but the beast has been an absolute burden

inboards are for rich people

real sailors use outboards


I am also hoping that a prettier boat will look better on the dvd covers and it is those that pay for all those films you have been watching for freemans

and by the way - the films look better on a telly than they do in a tiny window on a laptop
