Hello adrian ,

My name is Theo Hunink and I'm sailing on the "Thema" formaly "Rose" an Ufo 34 from Holman&Pye and build by Colvic.
First my compliments of the "renegade site" and the "Ufo News", wich I 'found on the internet.
My English is not so well, so sorry for faillures that I make, but I'm trying .

The "Thema ist the boat is of very close frend of mine, and we are sailing it thogether. He bought the boat in 2006 and we saild the boat for two months
then we stripped the hull and coated it with epoxy. The deck was stripped and repaird and we build an steeringwheel on it.
After five months we could sail again and renamed it to "Thema".
Our Port of registry is in Urk (The Netherlands) at the IJselmeer, an very nice place to sail and one hour driving from our home.
This winter we are working at the inside of the boat, new seeling, heater and navigation instruments to make everything so confeniant as possible.

The reason why I 'm writing is I want to know more about the Ufo 34, do you have any documentation of the builder or specifications of performance?
You can also put us at the owners list
Name ship Thema
Owner Matty van der Linde
