Topic: Looking for a lugsail

  I used to have a Swallow type lugsail which unfortunately came to a sad end in a friend’s barn. After a lull of several years I am keen to find another lugsail and get back on the water. Any ideas?

  This one might be a possibility, though it might be a bit small. If so it's worth keeping an eye on Andy Seedhouse's stock as he often has that sort of thing.

  Many thanks but as you say it’s a diddy one. I was looking for something just a bit bigger. Really like the Landamore featured from a few years ago.

  We’ve got an ex Percy Hunter Lugsail dinghy built in the 1930s with trailer but it’s in Somerset and we have no tow bar to bring it back to Norfolk.It needs sikaflexing the seams unless you leave it to almost sink for 24 hours it’s about 8 or 9 ft

  Thanks Kenmure but a bit too small again.

  There is one in the car park at whispering reeds Hickling that was their hire boat that I’m sure they would sell you but it will need a bit of work to get it usable again
