Roger Taylor’s 2011 voyage

September 12, 2011

Yet another epic voyage to Northern waters, this time well into the Arctic and reaching a point north-west of Spitzbergen. If my map reading is correct it is approximately as shown by the green arrow on the Google Maps screenshot below:

For sale and wanted

April 6, 2011

There is a healthy market for Corribees and Coromandels, and we get a number of advertisement requests each month from both buyers and sellers. Check the For Sale and Wanted page for our current ads – which currently includes a very tidy-looking bilge keeler in Stoke Gabriel (South Devon), and Tonga, a late mk2 fin-keeler ready for the season. Also well worth a look is Otter, a mk 2 and one of the few fitted with a Yanmar inboard diesel engine. Spares and fittings are always needed by restorers so if you have any un-needed parts available that others could use (especially spars, rigging and furling gear) an advertisement will get them to someone who can make good use of them.

We don’t have a formal payment system for the advertising page – all we ask is that it is boat-related and that you consider making a small donation to the site to help us cover our web hosting costs. Send an email to corribeeeditors@googlemail.com with the desired text and attach any photos you want to display. We recommend setting up a temporary email address (with, for example, Yahoo or Google) if you wish to avoid your main address becoming a spam target.
