Re: Glenmore

Just a thought David, looking at that photo, has someone nicked the mast?? Had a good one with a useful roof fitting.

Re: Moores & sons pennant

I didn't think the front "V" berths were meant to have an infill! I never managed to find a board for that and the edge of the berths was a raised moulding which suggested to me that was the only option designed for.
The sliding window in the cockpit is very useful indeed!

Re: Moores & sons pennant

Considering the figure I sold her for I'm staggered that she got in such a condition so rapidly and that she has been stood for so long!

Here she is back in 2011, she was much the same when I sold her in 2014.

Re: Moores & sons pennant

I did major restoratrion work on Glemore back in 2012/13 and was hugely disappointed to see the state she was in compared to how she was when I sold her. Good luck and take care of her. One very impressive thing about her is the thickness of the layup on her hull. Absolutely bomb proof!

Re: New BMC Forum

There is a good forum for BMC and "vintage" engines already loaded with lots of info Miles.
www.canalworld.net and look down the list. What they don't have is any advice on more modern engines
so this might be a useful area to look at.

Re: Recommend some window repairers please

"seals to the fibreglass have detonated and are letting water in" Sounds like your seals are a tad unstable! More seriously, I think you will find it a struggle to get someone to visit and remove the windows to take away and refurbish. Folks used to recommend the RAC commercial vehicle division wind...
