For Sale, or rent 

Wrecked Senior on trailer, good for shifting from person to person so you could pretend you were a real 'owner'. Contact eoa for your chance to have it in your backyard and get your name in lights! 

'John, I have a brand new 2" No.8 Bronze, Flat Head screw from an Eventide - does this constitute ownership?'

Sorry Folks, yes it is a joke, this is what the ex owners in the old eoa committee actually resorted to, to stay in charge! Sad Eh! Maybe by placing this here we can shame them into either restoring them or passing them to someone who is willing to!

The real adverts start here!

Barbican 33 GRP locker lids.

I wonder if any Barbican 33 owners would be interested in new GRP locker lids.

Our 1987 ‘Viking Lady’ had wooden locker lids which leaked badly, they were warped and had hinges.

The vertical part also hinged back against the  horizontal part to improve access but this was also a source of leaks.

We have now made brand new one piece GRP lock lids for port starboard and stern lockers and we are going to cover them with ‘looks like teak’  or Treadmaster.

It was quite job making them. We had to make a template out of MDF and wood from that a GRP mould was made and from the mould the real thing was produced.

If anyone in the group who has a B33 would like a set of locker lids I could put them in touch with the makers of our lids, who would be prepared to make more sets.
