Boat charter

Postby paulhilliar » Fri Dec 12, 2008 3:12 pm

Hi All

I'm have been sailing RS400s for a few years, but with my wife expecting a second baby it is clearly time for a singlehander so I'm selling the 400 in favour of a Musto Skiff.

I'll be buying my own Musto Skiff as soon as I can sell my RS400 but the market is a bit slow at the moment and I suspect that it will be spring time before I find a buyer - is there anyone who would lend or charter me a Musto Skiff? I know it is a slightly unusual request but if you don't ask then you don't get.

Maybe someone who isn't going to use their boat for a few months could use a few hundred quid in exchange for lending me their boat for a while?

I don't have any significant previous trapezing experience but have done pretty reasonably in the 400s and can't wait to get involved with the Mustos. Obviously I would get any damage professionally repaired etc. There is only so much K16 watching a person can take without getting quite frustrated at a lack of boat :wink:


Anyone got some ideas?


Thanks

I think you are being very modest ... Paul has won the RS400 nationals is knows what he's doing .. sitting down anyway ... and trapezing isn't that tricky.

It will be great to have you on board Paul; Contact Tom http://www.mustoskiff.com/class-association-gbr.htm he's your local rep and may be able to help.

Also - Ovi's have a demo boat on the go and that may be available even if it's just for a weekend ...

Paul

I have the demo boat at Rutland up to and including the weekend of 20th - 21st.

The boat is then on the Marlow stand at the London Boat Show.

I'll be taking it back to Rutland after that until the Tiger Trophy.

If any of these dates are of use, pleas elet me know.

Thanks for the advice. Paul Clements has very kindly taken me out for a couple of test sails at Chew Valley

No joy on an actual boat charter so I'm going to look for a second hand boat that I can afford to buy without waiting for the 400 to sell!

Cheers

Sounds like a good plan ...
