One of life's little bonus' arrived a week ago in the form of Numbers 1 to 51 of Classic Boat magazine.I happened across an advertisement and purchased them all for my own little self. Extravagent, I know. ( I'll get a collection of Woodenboat next mark my words)
Anyway, they make good reading. There's something different about the way the magazines were written a decade or so ago. Less professional, everything is fresh.
I discovered a letter from Ian Wright discussing his new boat in one issue ( sounds like it was going to be called something else at that stage)and in number 5, Lo, Mirelles lines and sail plan. How nice to see the boat we've all heard so much about.
