Miscellaneous / WB1 for sale £5000
July 05, 2021, 01:51:04 PM
The first numbered Winkle Brig in great condition and ready to sail. After 3 years stranded in Liverpool, we took her for a recommissioning voyage on the Norfolk Broads last month. Everything from the trailer up worked perfectly. The Yamaha 4hp outboard started on the second pull. The drop keels moved freely and easily.  Sails are in good condition as is the standing and running rigging.

"Winkle One" is fully equipped with:
   - Original purpose-built trailer with recently renewed uprated suspension units with new brakes, hubs, wheels and tyres. Uprated load capacity as recommended elsewhere in this forum. renewed rollers and winch.
   - Inflatable tender (believed to be sound but not tested this year) with pump
   - Ample fenders, mooring lines, boat hook.
   - Deck mounted anchor, chain and warp.
   - Cockpit tent.
   - VHF.
   - Echo sounder.
   - Bilge pump
   - Porta Potti sized to stow away behind the cabin access steps.
   - Original two burner gas hob.
   - New 12volt battery.

Newly re-varnished.

Pictures on request from and available to view in South Liverpool.

Miscellaneous / WINKLE ONE FOR SALE

Sadly, "Winkle One" will be moving on. There has been some discussion about whether she is the first Winkle Brig, but she proudly carries the sail designation WB1.

She is in good condition, ready for sea and pretty much stock with a gaff rig, a Mariner 4 outboard and inflatable tender. She has the original highly serviceable gas cooker, ample fenders, two anchors (a Fluke and a Bruce), VHF, depth gauge  and is on a Roller Coaster trailer. Two adult life jackets and a child's are included as is a custom made cockpit tent and a heavy duty cover.

She has spent almost all of her life based on Loch Torridon, a sea-loch in the Western Highlands of Scotland, the previous owner having bought her direct from the builders. She is at present in Torridon village and may be inspected there.

Yours for £6,000.
