Last week Renegade was in Ramsgate and, as the crew was taking modest refreshment in the Royal Temple Yacht Club, I chanced to see that Hard Seed had visited in August. Now Hard Seed appears on the UFO List and is registered in Chatham, but I didn't recognise the name of the skipper. Has there been a change of ownership? UFO News must be told!

I'm looking for a Top Cap for Lewmar 43, like in the pictures.
I'd like to know, where can I buy one or two units, because I lost one falling into the sea, and the other will be for a spare.
The measures are 32.10 mm inside, and 79 mm outside.
I asked Lewmar England, and they told me theres no Top Caps for this winches as they are too old.
So, Im looking for one or two in second hand, or any chandlery that has it, in his old stock.

I'm looking at an un launched UFO 34 hull. It's an unfinished self build project. What is concerning me is that the keel appears to be a separate moulding that has been attached to the body of the hull. Internally the fibre mat appears to be continuous so I would imagine that this is from when Colvic moulded her. I thought that the hull was moulded as one piece in a split (along the centre line) mould.
Do you know what a bare hull should look like around the keel / hull joint ?
Were the keels moulded separately and then included in the hull mould ? Is this indicative of serious damage or to be expected ?

Do you know the exactly reference model of this engine?
Where can I get a Technical Reference of it?

The Renegaders have an enduring love for the west coast and every year when we discuss our cruising plans, there are votes in favour of a return to Scotland. Renegade was last there in 1999 and is booked to return in 2008, but it can be a long slog up the east coast from our home port of Ipswich. What about a 2008 UFO 34 rally in Oban, Tobermory or somewhere else on the west coast, Phil?

Have you any experience of the sea cocks leaking or the stern gland. I'm trying to trace a small leak into the bilges.

Hope you and UFO and going well and plenty of time to sail. Have just bought a new set of sails for Not Negotiable and starting to do a bit more racing with the hope of some more off shore races toward the end of the year in keeping with her past.
Feel free to add my email address to the contacts list site if anybody is passing through the area.

Good day to you!
My UFO 34 is still for sale. Decided to take things out of the hands of brokers = Europ Yachting = at Marseille.
The boat is still on land at Port St Louis du Rhone, and at the moment I am working hard to get her in an as good as possible condition again in order to sell her = ready to sail =.
Price idea about 26.000 Euros.
