As you may know, my West Wight Potter, ‘Sandpiper’ is for sale. Details can be found at Ebay.co.uk by keying in the following number into the Ebay Search Box: 161065836009. A fair amount of interest has been shown. At the time of writing, the advert has been looked at 365 times in 9 days and there are 29 watchers.
If you read the description carefully you will see that I am open to offers. I have had one offer to date, but it was for less than I would accept. To see her taken on by a new caring owner I am now prepared to include the road trailer – offers should be over £1,400 with the trailer and more than £1,200 without.
Whoever gets her will have a bargain. Included in the sale there is a solar charger, an almost brand new 12 v battery, a single-burner camping stove, an anchor and warp, and a lifting outboard bracket. None of these things were with the boat when I bought her. Furthermore, I repaired and reinforced the centreplate case, and I had the centreplate freshly galvanized. I re-cut the mainsail and Genoa and fitted new stainless steel shrouds. All of the woodwork has just been varnished and the rudder painted.
‘Sandpiper’ is ready to go. You could be sailing her right away.
