    Fellow G&L owners and GALA members - I would like to remind you again about our position on subscriptions.

    There aren't any!

    I've just tried to have a look at the Boat Register under 'Publications' but get the following message:

    NOT FOUND: Gaffers and Luggers Boat Register February 20 2011.xls
