  • Hi all. When I own Juliet my beloved Privateer 20. I painted the bottom with Crown outdoor paint from B&Q. Very cheap. Not a good anti foul. I kept her on a drying out mooring at Christchurch and after 6 months I had some weed growing on the bottom. But it just power washed off. The boat is fibreglass it isn't going to rot away. Honestly try a good quality outdoor paint if you are...

  • You are always welcome Oliver. Jules and I will be moving to Gibraltar in a couple of years. We always had planned to keep property in the uk.

  • Good evening ladies and gents. It's with a heavy Heart that I have to put my pride and joy up for sale. This is due to the life changing events that have happened over the last few weeks and Jules and I will shortly be looking for a larger live aboard boat and moving to Gibraltar.

  • RYA Day skipper and Crewman/women coarse in Gibraltar. I paid a little extra so that we could have the boat to ourselves along with one other person and the instructor. this was so that the boat wasn’t overcrowded and that we could have the double cabin. I also decided to do the course in May as the weather in Gibraltar is bound to be great. So we flow out of Gatwick to...

  • Just a very quick note to public thank Oliver for a lovely few days sailing out of Liverpool Sailing club and then on to north Wales and Anglesey. Paul my craw and myself had a great time and was sad when it finished early due to bad weather. I won’t go into too much detail as Oliver is much better at that sort of thing than I am. But I will have some videos going on my YouTube...
