    Re: eleonora

    We have her salvaged tender in the maritime museum boat shop here in Jersey. I’ll get some pics next time I’m there. It was under water for a few weeks so still decided what we will do with it.

    Eleonora sinks in Spain

    Re: H28 "Larrikin" rebuild

    It’s been a long time since I’ve done geometry but are you sure it’s a parabolic curve you want Larks and not a simple or elliptical curve? Just noticing the chart title on your spreadsheet. Is it...

    Re: Shortwave on a marine radio

    Re: H28 "Larrikin" rebuild

    Good find Greg. If it works as well as the video suggests it’d be a game changer.

    I contacted the UK supplier that I found and with the postage it’s over £80 GBP. I need to find out if the...

    Re: Desiree-Jacqueline

    As much as I would love to do a true restoration, I think myself and the museum are pretty pragmatic and acknowledge that funds and volunteer labour are in short supply. I believe I could make the...
