"The Bosun says, with some authority, that I have collected far too many projects that would ‘only take a few weekends’ to complete. Needing more space in the garage for sensible and practical use of my time, this is the largest such item and it must go NOW... "  

Wayfarer Sailing Dinghy HULL ONLY with rear hatch cover and deck boards. In original white gelcoat, cream deck NEVER PAINTED, anti-foul removed so what you see is what you get.  Usual surface star gel cracks from normal use You will need basic experience of GRP repairs, but no expert knowledge.

Basically solid and clean, needs minor work to:                

  • Trailer rub patches at front                
  • Port rear chine repair approx. 8cm                
  • Fit support pads to underside of thwarts/centreboard case supports
  • Repair impact damage to starboard gunwhale/deck edge midships
  • New rubbing strip

Pictures show the condition, better still come and look at it in Hedgerley.

Would look excellent with this work done and, if you so choose, a coat of paint.  

NB – there is no trailer so you will have to borrow one or a big van to move it.
