Much loved and trusted Pico that has been in our ownership for 20 years. It still has lots of sailing left in it.

3 mainsails (2 well used for training and 1 excellent one for racing) and 2 jibs (1 trainer / 1 racer).

Spars, rudder and plate well used, but in good condition. Cover has seen better days, but still does what it’s supposed to do. Trolley also included.

Dinghy park space under the racks all paid for during winter season.

£500 ono

Please call Dan (07973 715522) or Lesley (07976 750607)

Help needed with Primo and the Sandhopper Launching Trolley

Published by under Club Notices

I’m looking for some help with Primo over the winter and the Sandhopper Launching Trolley. Can anyone help?

The list of jobs include.

Sanding, prepping and Antifouling Primo, Painting the floor internally with non slip & giving it a good clean up all round.

The trolley has a new jockey wheel, Pete replaced parts of the metal last year, but the wheel was broken at lift out this year. I have two new axles and wheels on the way for it, the old axles need cutting off (as the nuts are rotten) new holes drilled and the new axles fitting. We need to make sure that when they are fitted the black lifting frame fits over them, so we can get boats on an off of it easily so we can use it properly for launching and recovering. If you can help, please let me know.
