    I would like to draw to your attention an amazing little tide programme. But of course you may have known about it for years!

    Good luck with it - I'm not sure how I would connect to an alternator! Mine is a typical modern type with internal regulator, unlike the old ones with external regulator, and I can't remember whether there is a warning light connection. I did take mine off a while back to modify for an...

    i have looked at amazement at the spelling in some adverts on Ebay.  I have just re read my reply to you and my face is red. I plead being up at 4am this morning!

    Thank you for your response. I have looked again at the unit and you might well be right. Two terminals are really terminals and the other two are questionable. There are securing nuts and bolts to hold the thing together though.

    The two wires leave the oil pressure sender along with the...

    Ron, seeing as no-one else has commented I shall jump in with a bit of inspired guesswork...

    The hour counter itself first of all. Are you sure that there are four terminals? This seems very unlikely but I can imagine a black plastic case with two hex nuts holding the case on to the works...

    for what it is worth....i will provide the measurements of my sails, but I know they differ from the others.

    Look at the gallery and you will see that they are all slightly different. I would say that it is essential to measure your own boat and not take mine or others dims.

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

    There aren't any!

    We have enough in the pot to keep us going for the foreseeable future (web site fees, etc) but I am still receiving some subscriptions paid by standing...

    My 28 was built in 2002 (I think - memory getting a bit blurred these days) and certainly has a CE builder's plate. On mine, it is a fairly large oval brass plate mounted high on a part-bulkhead, port side, a little way in from the companionway. But given that there aren't two boats the same, I...

    We suggest you contact Sam Heard at Gaffers and Luggers.

    Thanks for that.

    I should have been more specific though. In terms of rental, when I said 'South West Area' what I actually meant was South Devon!

    Cheers.

    A brief report on the Picarooner Modified Rudder.

    After launching CRINKER at Penmarlam Quay yesterday, I put a dab of grease on the pintles and found the rudder much lighter to lift and fit over the stern. She went on much easier than the original as I think the pintles and gudgeons were...

    There were a few G&L boats at Yarmouth. We were rafted up alongside Susan J, and at the other end of the raft was Toucando, a 35' Quay Punt built by her first owner on a Martin Heard hull. Corncockle was on the next raft along, and I know that Verity was tucked around the corner from where...

    Sometime ago a friend directed me to this video of a French Picarooner on the Ile de Groix it has a dipping lug rig with no bowsprit. It appears in the video at 2:30.

    Brilliant - that works a treat now: thank you!

    We had a slight technical issue the boat register, but you should be able to download the latest version from the publications page now.

    Colin is hoping to upload a new revised Boat Register shortly.

    Yes it’s heavily built with substantial pintals,...

    Nice Pics Tim

    Looks like a lot of work has gone into making Picaroo's rudder.

    Thanks for posting
