    Default Collection of historical craft being broken up by auction

    Apparently a charity group that set out to rescue as many dinghies and traditional / ethnic boats in the UK has run out of money and its collection is to be sold by auction.

    There is a related article on the subject in Yachts and yachting
    from which I have cloned this picture:

    Thanks for the redirect, Andrew. I haven't been here very frequently of late (it's Summer, after all!).
    I hope you get the boats and I hope you're successful in saving them.
    Pity that Berlin's so far away but I think SWMBO would not appreciate any more distractions.

    Cheers;

    Gernot
