    Albert is a pond yacht made by an uncle in 1926 and passed onto me in 1959. I have carried out three major restorations/refits since then, hence the name. The last was in 2018/19 and the most challenging. I will post items about the work shortly.
    In 2009 I rescued Albert from the loft, and this is how she looked. Saggy red sails, and a little unloved.

    Hi Nice looking yacht from the age I guess she is quite big. But very nice to see these old yachts kept seaworthy.
    I have an old R36 yacht at home that I should have sorted out by now. She has plank on frame with screwed in planks.
    The planking is very thin in places and due to age there is some gapping. I sorted most of that by regular spraying with water.
    But there she lays, a guilty secret!
    regards and look forward to the refit.
    Roy
