08 Jun For Sale LN326 SOLD Julie
This boat is a Mark Giles Hull (1996) that was podded 4 years ago when I purchased her. Last year I upgraded the Mast, Boom, Rudder & Mylar Sail from John Claridge.

The mast is a two section mast which makes transport and travelling so much easier. The boom has a double purchase on the outhaul and the Kicker and down haul have all been upgraded to additional purchase to make sail control easier.

There is a spare sail in Dacron which is in fair condition. She has a launching trolley, under cover, boom up top cover. I have a road base which fits the launching trolley which may be available separately.

She is based in Ullswater, Cumbria but can also be viewed in West Yorkshire or at some of the Lightning opens.

The boat has been well maintained, for example new universal joint just fitted to the tiller extension, cleats for the controls replaced last year, many of the control line bocks are new and the control lines themselves were replaced last year.

This is an excellent boat which has only had two careful owners and it has previously won both the nationals and the northern championships.

Further photographs will be available shortly.
