I have updated the Heard boat register, which you will find under the "Publications" tab, plus added another article under the "Articles" tab.

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

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

Has anyone got any idea what's wrong?

A Picarooner that SANK??!!! Hi Tim, do you know anything more about that? Did the boat have the old style "buoyancy" lockers, or was the conversion from some other early style of build? Not that any boat is ever unsinkable, but I've never heard of a Picarooner going to Davy Jones!

Hi Colin Just been looking through the register

Our Picarooner Picaroo is not on the register

Picaroo was oringinally built as a launch then converted c1990 to a cutter rigged sailing Picarooner by Peter Thelwell .

I believe this was his second converstion the first sank and was lost some where on the South coast.  These boats obviously account for two of the launches, but which ones?

They were both converted with the knowledge of Gaffers and luggers who supplied the centre board case and plate. 

Is there any way of identifying them, is there a build number anywhere on the hull?
