  • Hello, A long way and I don't exactly have massive areas of space but I would be interested in seeing some pictures for possible collection. Is it on a trailer and if so what is it like. This would be the biggest area of concern for me if I were to tow her back to the U.K. Regards, William

  • Removed the boat winch at the weekend. Sadly rotted through so just looking for a new one. I'm aware of the "working capacity" and "breaking capacity" however the only winches I've found so far have a working capacity of 500kg and breaking capacity of 1500kg. 500kg seems a little too small? Or with the effect of the rollers compensate? William

  • Hi Oliver, Wow lots of helpful information and advice. Thank you With regards to safety i already have most safety equipment (life rafts, buoyancy aids, life jackets). these have accumulated over the year from previous boats my family have had. However i do not have a set of distress flares so these will be top priory for me. How essential is a P.L.B if i have a radio and flares...

  • Tony, Thanks, yeah generally speaking not too bad as my grandparents managed to keep her under cover fairly well. There is a little damage bow end which i need to investigate further. I notice a lot of other Privateers have there electronics screwed to either the port or starboard bulkhead facing inwards. Where did you managed to get those low height battery? I was going to store...

  • Good evening guys. I am new to this group so please bear with me. I have recently been given my grandparents old boat; a privateer 20 called Beau Vista. This boat was bought from new from factory. I have traced down the dates from the original documents and believe she was built between 14th April - 15th May 1975. The name "Beau Vista" was taken from my great grandparents property...
