Re: Website Hosting Costs

Hi friends Thank you very much for your support in this. Something I didn't know is that when you send money through paypal if you specify that it's a 'personal gift' rather than 'payment' than I receive the full amount. Otherwise paypal charges a percentage for their service. One of you sent £2 as ...

Website Hosting Costs

Dear friends I was asked by my son in whose web-space our Prelude-Owners' site is hosted if we would like to contribute towards the costs of hosting. He just received a bill of $280 for the next three years and though in the past he was happy to cover this costs on his own, this time he would welcom...

Re: Spinnakers??

If you don't have spinnaker pole could it be that you have a cruising shut rather than a spinnaker? Check it out. I also have a cruising shut rather than a spinnaker.

Re: Norfolk Broads Mooring Fees

Thanks Simon I am quite broke at the moment but knowing that the Empress of Blandings is selling for just £250 I'm so tempted. I've never been to the Broads but I heard that it's amazing and I thought that this may give us the opportunity to spend a few nice weekends away from London. On the other h...

Norfolk Broads Mooring Fees

I know there's quite a few Prelude Owners in the Norfolk Broads.
I would like to hear what you think may be the cheapest mooring fees in the Broads.
Thanks

Re: to the owners of Pela

Hi Dave I just found this email from last January which will answer your question and reassure you that your prelude is the 173 - I will be amending the Owners list. Hi Harris I think our Prelude is 173, although I can't be absolutely certain at the moment - I'll let you know if I find out different...

Re: Lifting Keel Base

I have spoken on the phone with David, a Prelude owner in Yorkshire, who believes that the base is just made out of fiberglass, there's no metal skeleton involved as I thought to support the lifting keel. Does anyone else have any knowledge on this?

Lifting Keel Base

Hi friends From a recent survey, it appears that my base that supports the lifting keel has come unstuck in certain parts. My boat has the old type of lifting keel with the winch right inside the cabin, and the encasing that sticks out on the floor. Does anyone have any drawings or experience of how...
