Hi Gerold,

Nice pictures. I am jealous about your trip. Did you catch any fish?

Great photos Gerold and interesting to notice small differences in rigging and fittings between different Winkle Brigs.

Going back to the rig tension question, the "Old Gaffer" way of doing rigs is to make it look tight, but feel slack!

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.

Hi Gerold-your new aluminium bilge plates look fantastic and I would be very interested to hear how they perform under sail.The reason I have added an inner forestay plus 2nd pair of shrouds is that all of my sailing is on the sea in fairly open water and mainly on my own, so do not like the idea of the mast coming down on my head! As to rig design-do like the look of 'Titsou' sailing at Rochelle with battened mainsail and two foresails.Happy sailing,regards,Robin.

Im looking to get a set of oars for my wb43. not sure what length to go for so wondering has anyone got them and what size is comfortable. I have the dayboat version if that helps.

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

Just to say thankyou from a newbie member to the crew of 'Sea Jade' for two new delightful videos taken on Coniston water.Videos of Winklebrigs sailing are fairly few in number and am planning on producing one of my own boat entitled 'all at sea!' regards,Robin.
