Just saw this on Boat Scrapyards site. The boat is in Cheshire

    About simon

    Boat: A5 ** Interest: My father purchased Diaphony in 1977, having just sold Our Lysander 17 called Grebe and with two adults and three kids and a dog it was decided that we needed a bigger boat.Having looked at a few boats my father stumbled across Diaphony A5 at Chichester marina on its trailer,after a while the owner finally clinched the deal with my Father in a pub at Dell Quay . After a year spent renovating A5 she was ready for launching at Chichester .The boat was sailed for the remainder of the 70s and early 80's having crossed the channel many times ,she was returned home for minor work and hasn't seen the water since. ** Location: bucks ** Country: GB

    One thought on “A49 seems to be in need of rescue

    1. Hi Simon
      Thanks for the heads up. We are in discussion with the boatyard. Sadly the boat is in very poor condition and not realistically salvageable- there are many better candidates if someone wants a project. A great shame.
      The Commodore and Secretary are talking to the boatyard to see if there is anything we can do to the benefit of members and other owners.
      Ideas welcomed
