Dylan... I hate to be the one to tell you this, but I think all that salt air has messed with your head.

Guess we'll have to get us one of those Picnics then. Not only does such fine prose make it hard to resist, its been a few moons since last I saw the Wombet glow with delight at my boyish joy. A Picnic could well be the go.

Yon TS16 may well be perfect for the creeks but I'm not sure about the offshore hops.

Still and all I'm thinking Picnic could be a Dylanesque boat. Notice how as soon as he gets his hands on a decent donk he's heading upstream like a typical stinkboat hoon. Five knots indeed. You hooligan DW. Imagine if he had 40hp on his Picnic. Be overflowing with boyish joy.

No no young Winter .... get ye back to your Sullen Ark ..

by the way has anyone actually read the prose that goes with the pdf of the picnic

brilliant

dig this guys


"Junior as lookout squatted on the bow deck. Sis , sprawled out on the cockpit floor mattress. Perhaps your wife will want to put the baby to sleep in the cabin for a nap. It is so wonderfully quiet under sail. Then she will relax in the sun - lean comfortably back against the cabin wall and glow with delight as she watches you skipper the boat with boyish joy."

It is a wonderful, wonderful document

cheap enough

the Picnic looks cheap enough

although transport might be a problem

I would love a Hartley 16 for exploring the creeks of the UK

and they sail really well

it would be great

but I have the slug - and everything is wonderful

of course I could always buy one of these

Especially when your wife suggests taking "Betty and John" from next door for a sail as well. That is four adults and three kids in a 17 footer

brilliant stuff - well worth a wallowing in the prose - and the pictures are brilliant

The other way around, TD. The Hartley TS was actually the world's first home-built trailable yacht with accomodation.

Wikipedia says:
Quote:
Designed by Richard Hartley beginning in the late 1950s for home construction. The TS16 was the first truly trailable sailing boat which incorporated accommodation. His genius for design and identifying the need for yachts that gave a little more room and comfort than that offered by Off-the-Beach yachts initiated a whole industry. TS16's have been built in Australia since 1963, and there are records of TS18's and 21's being built in the early 1970s
..and that's probably about right. Should be old enough for Dylan - no?

A Hartley TS18 is a far better boat than that. Just sayin'..

the brochure is an absolute hoot and a classic of its type
