The two happiest days in a boat owner's life ?

The day you buy her and the day you sell her.

I'm not sure I necessarily hold with that, but one of those two has just happened to me, which means I can line up the other one in short order. Huzzah !!

We need details!

SOLD: Merlin Rocket 3545. A plastic NSM II. The last NSM II to be built (in 1996). Sold to a chap who wants to run it in the classic fleet. It's a good pond and river design (tacks well) but tends to dig deeper when the wind blows as opposed to skipping up on the plane. It takes weight well too (which the new owner needs).

Now on the lookout for an MR Winder Mk IV.
