Re: UK South Coast Surveyor Recommendation Required

Re: Camber spar parts in the UK

Hi Peter

Hope all is well?

The rig shop in Saxon Wharf have repaired our camber spar and made parts for it in the past if you need. The main guy there definately knows his stuff! Good Luck.

Best Regards

Hi Ferronia, 14.5 knots - wow thats going some. Were you under spinnaker at the time? Tough gusty conditions for sure and sorry to hear about the kicker. Well done anyway a good result. Never seen Liberty, but will look out for her around the Solent.
See you soon
