Welcome to the new 2018 AOA Website
The designs – Fairey Marine Atalanta 26, 31, Fulmar, Titania and Fisherman
The boats – registers and individual boat histories including ‘Boat Blogs’ which everyone can contribute to
The archive – bulletins, papers, drawings and much more, all available online
Forums – seek and give advice on sailing and maintaining the boats, advertise gear for sale and wanted etc.
See the About page to learn more about the site.
A lot of the site is available to the public but details of the boat registers, the AOA archive and some aspects of the Forums are restricted to AOA members. Read about the different access levels here.
How to contribute
Offers of help to create material, update boat register details and so on are welcome, and you will find forms to do this throughout the site. We actively seek contributions through the ‘Contribute’ page, or if you prefer contact the webmaster using the contact form.
<!-- ******* not used ************* <!--Boat Registers and Blogs. Not personal. The AOA Registers are all on line and each boat has its own page. Everyone is encouraged to post and especially owners. Updates on boat cruises, restorations, modifications and so on. Things that should be in the history file for the boat concerned. The Boat pages include the Boat Blogs as well as details from the AOA Registers, an index of Bulletin articles referencing the boat and of Trophies won by the boat/its owners through the years. Forums. For discussions and questions between AOA members, and also website subscribers. (Ning was closed to non-members). Workshop, Bar, Meet up and more. Intended for discussions and information which are not specific to a particular boat - these should be on the Boat Blog. As on the Ning site you may want to post about your new modification on the page for your boat, but include a topic in the Workshop Forum highlighting that you have done so to maximise the chance of others learning from it. Design Reference material. Each boat class has its own page covering specifications, design history and design features and articles on using them. These pages also include links to brochures and to the boat registers. You are encouraged to comment on and add to this material. AOA Archives. All of the Bulletins, drawings, technical papers and more that the AOA hold have been loaded for access by members. There are also design overviews, 'How To' guides for using the boat, copies of brochures and other Fairey Marine documentation which we hope members will add to over the years, sharing for the benefit of the whole Association.-->
