A record of the renovation of a
Wooden Drascombe Longboat 'Otter'

26th June 2007. Sailing at the Grand Fleet Day at Calshot

.Leaving Calshot and heading up Southampton Water.

I have reefed the jib and the mainsail as I don't know what will happen if the wind increases.

Consequently I am not as fast as Bolitho.

I hadn't realised that my mizzen mast was racked forward. It is stepped on the deck so I will have to adjust the four stays.


O ye of little faith!
