“I’m 70 this yr and retiring later to Spain. Sold Lyde for £500 over a year ago. The buyer has vanished, Lyde is still in my shed. Hull and deck sound apart from fairly simple repair under port quarter. Mast Proctor alloy with through mast roller reef boom, from new. Two mains almost as new, good laminated jib. Keels work ok, need new stops in keel boxes. Free to good home as they say. No engine, was a 1GM 10 but buyer took that away. Sadly I will scrap her by late May unless someone takes her on. Have planning to demolish the old brewery and build two houses so said “shed” comes down JCB goes through Lyde etc. If you know of anyone who wants please let me know.
