Re: Faced plywood for panel above Oceanranger chart table

I am given to understand that Robbins of Bristol are a useful outlet, and it has been said that they will supply off-cuts, but I can't be sure of that.

Member Ron Harrison advises that: "Hythe Sailing Club in Southampton Water now have a number of moorings available (suit up to 30 foot Westerlys, bilge and fin keel ). Cheap Moorings in this area are very difficult to obtain so this may be of help to some of our members in this time of financial con...

Re: South Coast Bembridge Rally 2014

Hi Clare

Always best to check directly with the organiser of the rally. The £13/head is for a BBQ meal and there is a £6 option if you feed yourself, but again you'd need to check if the £6/head is for all. I suspect it is not, but please contact the organisers. They are a friendly lot!

Re: Free Almanac

You need to see Roger's site. http://www.agentlemansyacht.com/

Basically the Home Brew refers to "home-made" following extensive research into a Hot Vac system for drying out the gelcoat under a vacuum. Impressive stuff in the back garden...

Re: Free Almanac

Roger, your rebuild is well worth documenting, and (IMHO) deserving of the prize already! If you write it up, get yourself an account on the Wiki, I will ensure you get all the help you need. The refurbishment of your keels, decks, hatches etc etc are all great material, and would be the best way to...

Re: Ageing a Centaur

I'd be interested to see a 1984 Centaur :) The actual build dates are 1969 - 1980.

If you have any of those numbers, I might be able to help you.

Re: The new Westerly Fulmar 33

As far as WOA is aware, the moulds were indeed destroyed some years ago. There were concerted efforts made by 2 WOA members to start a business building new Westerly yachts from these mouldings - indeed, they looked at other mould including Konsorts, Merlins and bigger Ocean series as well - but as ...

Re: stability

Actually, if you are a member of WOA, the correct way to contact the Boatline members as recommended by Nigel is to look in your Yearbook or on the Members section of the website. You can then directly contact Boatline members. The email route is intended for those who are not yet members, but are c...

Re: Storm lists to Starboard

Hi - it is alleged that all Storms list. This may or may not be true, but certainly some do. However, not only Storms list, other Westerly's do, as do other classes. There are many reasons postulated, from moulds not being true to poor weight distribution of heavy kit such as batteries and chain. Ha...
