Free Otter

Even if it helps to keep one or two more boats on the water in spares and repairs.. Interesting to see posts from Chichester harbour way, i sail out of Ems...

Re: Help restoring an Otter

So - I have a mast step fitted! I went for the super spar, thanks for the recommendation Springer. I fitted an access hatch and hey presto bolted on. I've replaced bottle screws to the shrouds and main sail is up (see pic below). Woodwork all sanded and varnished, now the fibreglass just needs some ...

Re: Free Sails Spinaker and trailers - damaged boat if wante

Don't think I've got room for the hull unfortunately, (and would likely land me in trouble with Mrs B) but Aptanet if you did manage to get the mast fixing that'd be great - no worries if it turns out to be too tricky, I think someone has managed to find a reasonable replacement one which isn't to m...

Re: Help restoring an Otter

Cweed, Springer - many thanks for the info, and sorry i had not responded Cweed. All the lingo is new to me - so 'foredeck' fixing it is then! And its called a 'mast step' - I've been looking on a few chandlery sites and until you know what things are called its tricky to find them. I've been lookin...

Re: Free Sails Spinaker and trailers - damaged boat if wante

I also would be really interested, if Aptanet doesn't take you up! Can I ask is she Bermudan rig (i.e. the aluminium mast type)? Most importantly for me I am still trying to source a mast fixing for the Bermudan rig - as mine is missing! Plus my sails are a bit sad looking :) Aptanet, if you do go a...

Help restoring an Otter

We have been given a beautiful little Otter dinghy. She has been used as a tender with an outboard for the last 10 years or so. We have the aluminium mast and rigging complete with shrouds and forestay and hope to get her back under sail. Unfortunately, the location where the mast should fit the boa...
