new WB owner
« on: May 17, 2021, 10:22:21 AM »
I am very happy to inform you that as of last Friday we are the proud owners of the Winkle Brig no 66.
After ferm negotiations with the former owner we came to a deal.
Mind you the boat needs a lot of attention as there is nearly no maintenance done in the last 16 years!
Sailing in the near future will be impossible unfortunately.

Keep you posted

regards from the Netherlands

Jos Rijnvos

Hi again Jos-congratulations from another newish owner-been beavering away with 'Cockle'.There has been a lot to do-2nd shrouds,inner forestay,renew most of the halyards,mast support,create chain locker,update electrics etc plus beating a well worn path to Classic marine for brass nav lights,brass cleats,brass hawse pipe etc.I have been following and imitating the improvements made by David Bone,owner of No 107 'Hope'.I am sure you will have a lot of fun refitting your boat,best wishes,Robin.
