This is Seagull no. 131 which has been owned by John Boon of Preston for about 8 years.  He hasn't done much with her up to now as work and an Ian Proctor designed Nimrod 18 which he keeps on Windermere have kept him busy.   I took the pic yesterday when John took me to look at her. The previous owner had kept her very well maintained and the only work needed is cosmetic, so now that John has the time another Seagull should soon be sailing again.

This good news was offset by a letter also received yestarday to tell me  about a Seagull that had been burnt  because the owner couldn't make the necessary repairs.

 

Tim Pullen has just sent the following pics of Seamew no. 71. 'TOMTEN' built in the  1960's by his parents who were both skilled

 woodworkers

 

 

Here she is having just been moved out of the shed in which she was built

Here she is rolled on to her starboard side ready to fit the keel

This is the other sideshowing the cockpit layout and the open main hatch

Here she is mounted on the trailer and the sails being fitted

Launching day has arrived

Nearly afloat

And finally here is TOMTEN under sail a couple of years later

The following photos are of the Seamew  Zephya which was bought by Paul Gregory last year.  The first photos show the boat as she arrived.   Looks like the previous owner had made a start with stripping the cabin.  The boat is basically sound with just a bit of rot at the bottom of the mast which is being repaired with  scarf joints.

The next two photos are of racing sculls that have been scarfed, showing  what can be achieved with scarfs.
