Re: What is the age of your boat?

My Pearson P-30 Cincuenta is 35 years old - Hull #1071 located in Galesville, MD. She was having issues with mold in the fresh water holding tank so I removed it, cleaned it with bleach replaced all lines and rebuilt two gusher foot pumps. so I have clean water. Next issue, I have a Signet Knot Meter that works well when the paddle wheel is clean but has a cracked glass. I would like to replace that glass any suggestions greatly appreciated. Looking for an abandoned Signet knot meter.

What is the age of your boat?

One hundred and three years old. 42' clinker Zulu from Shetland isles Scotland. Regularly sail lugger in Cornwall 1893. If you like old boats look at kauri built NZ craft, 200+ years and still going.

Re: What is the age of your boat?

My 1977 ERICSON 27 s/v ENCOUNTER allows me to care for HER, fuss over her, love her, be a slave to her affection and pay all the bills for her upkeep AND SHE takes ME along sailing whenever I want for my efforts and shows me a real good time; all in all...that's only fair. I'm twice her age, but I guess that's as good as it gets, eh?
