 3 Sept 2014

Well, another season is drawing to an end. I hope the weather was good enough in your part of the world to allow you some good sailing. Here on the far east coast of Canada we had an amazing July followed by a dismal August and we just have our fingers crossed for September.

This was my first season without a boat in nearly 20 years but I got through it pretty well. Have been out a couple of times but a life with grand-children and travel has more than made up for the time previously spent sailing.

I have decided I will hold on the the website for a while longer and may even try and "modernize" it a bit. Have started with some basic updates, Sales, inventory as well as add some interesting new projects. Also added a link to Allan Stokel's Grampian Marine site where he has created some interesting videos.

Now that the sailing is winding down, I hope some of you will send in stories, projects and photos so that we can give the site a good refresh. I keep asking but there only seem to be two or three people who provide me any material.

If you listed you boat for sale here and have sold it, please look at the For Sale page and ensure it has been updated with your sale. If not, please let me know. I am sure there are boats on the listing that sold long ago.

WARNING:  I continue to receive stories of the failure of the cast aluminum fitting on the bow to which your forestay and jib or furling gear attach. The latest report is on a G28. If you look at Item 14 on the G26 FAQ page you will find some discussion on this subject and possible alternatives for attaching your stay and jib. A NEW solution to the problem has just been added. 

 The problems continue. This new story from  Stainless Outfitters relates to the failure of a newly built G30 fitting, built presumably using the wrong aluminum alloy. You can read about this either on the General FAQ page or the G30 FAQ.  

Site Changes: Remember, rather than look through the whole site to see what has changed, select the Site Changes page for information on what changes have been made.

Log Entries: I encourage regular visitors to the site to view the Log entries as there are often new and prospective owners looking for advice from you all knowing Grampian experts. Please take a look and see if you can assist.

Thanks: Well it is it is over twelve years ago since this site was launched. It has grown considerably over those years thanks to the information and photos you have sent me. 

I want to thank all those owners who have sent information and encourage others to follow their example. I especially want to thank those people who have made a donation towards the upkeep of the site. There are costs associated with keeping it on a server and it does require time and effort on my part which I am still willing to provide.

Don't forget, this site depends upon your input of information and photos and of monetary donations to keep it going. Please help.
