Hi "Bubblehead", if you wish call me on 07900216266 or email regarding my Winkle Brig which is for sale.  Patrick.
I am having to sell my Winkle Brig ("Brigand" ex "Winkle" as owned by Martin Cartwight of WB fame).  I can email information if you are interested.  She is in "Ready-to-Sail" order and on a mooring at Wells-next-the-Sea in Norfolk.

Hello Kev,
In case you did not buy David Bone's No.107 and are still looking for a Winkle Brig, I am about to put No.62 "Brigand" (ex"Winkle") on the market.  I can email details.
Patrick Arnold.

Hello Kevin,
You may well have got yourself a boat by now but, if not, I am about to put my Winkle Brig (No.62 "Brigand", ex"Winkle") on the market.  I can email details but FYI I am in Norfolk (so quite a way from Cornwall).

Hi,  I'm a bit late to the party but interested in getting an electric outboard for WB62.

Gerald, I'm a bit confused as to which Epropulsion you have.  Is it the 'Spirit 1.0 EVO' which has the recharging ability but appears to be 1kW only.  Is this really powerful enough for close offshore and tides, etc.?  Or have you used on inland waters only?  PS I liked the Youtube on Conniston.

Any others who have some thoughts, please don't hesitate to advise/comment!

Greetings WB 120,
It would be lovely to meet up sometime but not in 2021 I fear!  Covid plus "cold as arse" weather!
From WB62!

I'm probably a moron but wouldn't a silicon spray/grease do the job?  Those who know, please advise!

Ah yes, the order was completed not the build!
Do you still have your WB on the Broads?
It would be good to meet up sometime.

Many thanks, Dave, excellent info.  Mr Reid must have been a fast worker!

Also many thanks, Jos, for the video which is of Martin Cartwright's daring doings.

Hi, I am trying to establish when "Winkle" No.62 was built.  Does anyone have clues or, indeed, know the answer?

Still for sale?  Is it a breakback?  Pictures?

Many thanks, Dave.  Have found one near Fakenham.  What material have you used?  Canvas or PVC?

Hello Dave,
Could you let me know the name of the cover manufacturer you used.  I am in Norfolk (too?).

A barn!  Oh, bliss!
