Hi all, forgive the double post, but I'm thinking maybe not everyone is reading my bilge-board repair thread.

General question to all - which fibreglass supplier do you use? I need to start thinking about buying some CSM, woven rovings etc. - does anyone have and info on who to use? Thanks :-)
The Hull / Delaminating Bilge Board
August 14, 2021, 07:12:11 PM
Hello all,

after a long period of incapacity I'm finally back to being mobile enough to start looking at the boat and getting her ready for sailing. The poor thing has been sitting on the front garden having been used a total of twice, four years ago, before my health and mobility went south. As a result she's a bit forlorn!

I've got the trailer well in hand - new bearings and brake shoes - probably at least one new brake cable as well.

While crawling around underneath I saw that the starboard bilge plate has delaminated to an alarming degree. I have not looked yet as to whether or not the boards are removable - my boat is Jenyatan, no.37, so it's a 50:50 chance I think.

From other forum posts it seems the boards are made of glass-sheathed ply with metal inserts - is there any resource I might access for how to repair or build a new one?

Many thanks,

Roger Harris
Sailing / WB37 'Jenyatan' for sale

Hello all,

It's with heavy hearts that we're putting Jenyatan, bought from Colin and Jayne Firth at the end of 2017, back on the market.

My unexpectedly and rapidly advancing arthritis and Suzy's foot surgery have effectively stopped us from using her more than a couple of times.

She's in very good condition and comes with the trailer as supplied by Colin and Jayne.

There may be someone on here who wants to buy - in which case great!

Otherwise we're looking to advertise on brokers sites and perhaps Ebay.

Can  anyone give advice and feedback on what options they've used?

We're looking for £7,800 ono

Many thanks,

Roger Harris.
Sailing / Anything Happening in 2018?

Hi All,

We're Roger and Suzy, new owners of Jenyatan, Colin and Jayne Firth's boat before us. We got her in late 2016 but bad health struck and she's been laid up since.

With on operation scheduled for the end of Feb, we're looking forward to recovery and the opportunity to sail in 2018.

Anyone organising anything later in the year? Any meets or raids bring attended?

Failing that, how about organising one of our own?



P. S. Hi to the Firths if still reading.

Hello all!

Suzy and I have just bought JenyaTan WB37 from Colin and Jayne Firth.

We've moved her to Bewl Water in Kent for the winter and how to get a little sailing in those shelters waters to learn her ways before venturing further afield.

One thing I've discovered I'm the last few days, our insurers insist on a wheel clamp on the trailer, but the prominent hub covers with their grease nipples prevent a standard clamp from being used.

Any ideas or suggestions?
