A couple of neglected Wayfarers lying at the side of the slipway at the YMCA Fairthorne Manor recently.
Neither boat was in too bad a condition, they could do with a thorough clean and polish and a couple of badly done repairs like the thwart on the grey one below would beneft form being done properly.
Appreciate that at an activity centre like Fairthorne boats get a hard life and are depreciated over a few years. But these would make a great winter project for the sea scouts or similar organisation and could be sailing next season.
