    They tend to be expensive to run and maintain. They also require less skill to helm

    Sorry about some of the pics quality, there scans of photos. Recently Sold the Bantry Puffin. Sad to see her go but she served well and practically built the marina by herself.

    Thalia is in the med making money. She's a Benatteu first 45.5 that once won the round ireland race. We bought her as an insurance write off and brought her back to life for charter purposes.

    Clewless, FlyingDutch Man and Breakeven are my fathers hobby. All National 18ft class. 3 crew with one on trapeze. Clewless is the new design that is currently the standard boat being raced. His current boat clea, is on loan from friends.

    Trying to find good pics of galavanter. She was a westerly discus 35. Sadly a large barge took a fancy to her along side a quay wall up west and she came off the worst. Her wreck is currenlty lying in Kilmacsimon boat yard.

    Right,Zulu,
    Get your digital finger out and post up the lot,so. As someone whose sole boat experience has been on a Hobie Cat, I could stand some educating about small craft,etc.

    This is not the Book review section. If you visit the store section, I think HPT already covered it.

    No problem on Pontoon space since my family own a whole marina, working on my own boat, but I'll just have to avail of my fathers. As far as nautical phrases go, I'll use them appropriately:wink:

    You probably were reading Ray Darcy's Fix it Friday books weren't you

    On other news, It seems like the Royal Cork Yacht Club has donated free of charge marina Pontoon sections to the Naval Base. Nice to see the Officers have a place for their own little commands

    The Information comes from a Fine book, property of one HPT Murphy.
    The Oxford Companion to Ships and the Sea, which has the answer to all those nautical questions you always wondered about.
    Caught between the devil and the deep blue sea, eh, GF.

    Where did that one come from?
