My sister is having to scrap her beloved 1920's  22ft half decker "Mayflower", so the complete rig is available -
Mast, new gaff, boom, standing and running rigging,  four year old sail, awning.  Looking for around £600.

Martham Development were asked to look at her with a view to replacing the decking and basically have said she is beyond economical repair.  Since my sisters husband died a couple of years ago, she cannot manage the upkeep on her own.    Betty is going too!

What a shame,we own Jamesia a half decker built by Martha in 1952 ,we bought her from hire in 1994 took her to Poole harbour for 4 years then back to Norfolk,after some repairs we sold her in 2000.She deteriorated badly over the next few years until she was sold again them completely restored to as new condition,there is no old wood on her hull.So we bought her back 3 years ago a brand new boat apart from mast and spars,ballast lifting keel and tiller.Its a shame Mayflower is to be scrapped but I understand.Jamesia would have gone the same way if it hadn’t been for the Brilliant boat builder who rescued and rebuilt her

My bother in law (who died) was a master carpenter and was able to do all the work required on both Mayflower and Betty.  Sadly my sister has no choice but she has bought a fairly new fibreglass lugsail half decker instead!

Sad to see that both Mayflower and Betty are to go (hopefully to a good home).  I saw Betty out sailing during the year and it will seem strange to sail past Repps and not see both boats on the water.
I remember spending many years sharing the shed at Martham when working on our own boats, and the amount of work that Len put into the maintenance of both.
However, as we have found, if you want to continue enjoying the sailing there is a logical time to move away from traditional boats and go to the Dark Side.
Just polish, antifoul and sail - perfect.
