                         Tony has sent a CD of pictures in to us,  as he promised he would.  It includes some real classic black and white shots from the day of her launch.   Tony has e-mailed us with the  captions to go with all the shots.  thanks Tony

Tony is now resident in France, like so many others he has moved himself and all over there, bold move, but in today's climate I might be the only one left here soon, even we have plans.....


So here they are, Tony Dellaway's 'Magog'.

   Launching day 1969,


  do we recognise the street? Info in from Tony it was in Battersea, South London.

 Where is this? Not Putney is it? No Richmond!

  Here she is on her mooring in Portsmouth Harbour, off Hardway Sailing club.

  Portsmouth on a fine evening....

  Ashore in Emsworth for a bit of a refit by the looks of her.

  Craning in!  At Emsworth

  Tony in a near gale off Fecamp

  Now I wonder where this picture was taken?

  On the canal in Burgandy.


  Is that a trusty Seagull I spy on the stern rail!  Now here is a man with taste!

  Negotiating the locks, a little larger than the ones round our inland waterways! Canal de Bourgogne.

  Alongside in Lyon.

26 metre rise!

River Rhone, Bolene eclusive.

  'Magog'  Etang de Tau at Meze.


After 28 years of ownership and with Tony retired to France,  Magog was sadly broken up there after he could not find anyone to take her on, even trying to offer her for free.  She had plenty of adventures and made many happy memories.

September 2012.
