    Hello, Thank you for the comments. This model has now been passed on to another Harbor. And i believe put into running order with a gaff rig and ballast weight, which was estimated at about 6lbs:.. Happy Sailing and Thank you again for the comment.

    Good looking workmanlike boat. I look forward to seeing pictures of her under sail, nice traditional gaff cutter rig would be ideal.

    Well done, Nerys

    Hello Nerys, Thank you for the comment, unfortunately i have no control on how she looks now or performs, but she has sailed with motor assistance as and when required, our pool/pond has a mass of greenery around the edges so sometimes a little motor assistance is required, but frowned apon ! Thank you again.. Regards Muddy.

    Nice job on the woodwork MuddyπŸ‘ Shame you never finished herπŸ€”
    "a little motor assistance is required, but frowned upon"
    The 'frowners' have obviously never been becalmed between Elba and Corsica!πŸ€”
    I was once in '94, and was extremely grateful for a little motor assistance!πŸ˜‰
    Even though the motor overheated quickly requiring several 'cooling stops'.😠
    One of the cooling hoses turned out to have a leak, repaired πŸ™„ with insulating tape!!
    Yachet was only hired for the day fortunately.
    Such a loada junk I would never have considered buying.
    😎

    Thank you, OK the Becalmed, good old insulation tape, well done. And they have never been stuck in the overhanging pond-side greenery or Bulrushes and Lilly pads, as for the sails believe its a Gaff type ! Thanks again.. Stay Safe..
