Miscellaneous / Selling our Winkle Brig motor launch
« Last post by Graham on July 28, 2019, 11:32:58 AM »
After 5 years we are selling our Winkle Brig, one of a small handful built as motor launches, which has been mentioned on this forum before.
She's finished with all wood top sides and interior, and powered by a Dolphin II 12hp inboard petrol engine, seats up to 7 adults comfortably and is very economical to run.
Currently out of the water on a new trailer at Chertsey, Surrey.
We're looking to sell with or without the trailer, offers in the region of £4500 for the two, or £3500 for the boat only.
For full details and photographs, or to arrange a viewing call me, Graham, on 07517 685925, or email

Alternatively, would anyone like to measure their WB for the handicappers? I've attached the form pages in case someone would like to have a go.
The Rig / Re: Boom Height
« Last post by Ken on July 27, 2019, 11:56:19 PM »
I have a fixed height gooseneck clamped round the mast so homed in on "Boom Height " when wondering if the gooseneck was at the best height.
The interesting and helpful comments highlighted that there are a number of variables in WB rigs so any further ideas on fixed gooseneck height with my high peak mainsail would be appreciated.

Gilbert Hayward is organising a South West Gaffers rally on the River Dart on 10th August as part of 'Ditsum Regatta'. He has an annual gaffers race using the OGA T(H)CF handicap with 1 and possibly 2 Winkle Brigs entering. Does anyone know if any Winkle Brig has been measured for this handicap?
