Fantastic - if I can do half as well on my winter project I'll be pleased.

There is a trick with the refurbing - NEVER give up. There WILL be a solution.

 I'm halfway through re-furbing 2038, I WILL finish it.

Just don't ask when.

I used to be the second owner of 2038 which we renamed  called Visionary. The previous owner Brian Hazelwood registered her as Passing Water, which did not go down we with my lady crew. Each new owner renamed her so she has had several names. The boat used to be faster than a Revo in light airs when sailed at Mayflower SC. However she then became the boat that everyone brought as a first Hornet in Plymouth, before disappearing up country. I hope you enjoy her as much as I did.

Hi Alan, forgive me for not responding sooner. I always enjoy hearing about the glory (or gory) days of my boats, so I will have to get together with you one day and see what you think of my efforts. I will also probably re-name her, looking at the spinnaker chute I think 'Mae West' would be appropriate!

If you're still sailing, you'll have to give it a try.
All the best

Hi Mike
I would love to give the old girl another go. Thanks for asking. I'm now sailing the most demanding boat I have ever owned a Pata Finn. How ever I'm also having restored a Flying Fifteen. If you are ever down Devon Way you would also be welcome to have ago in them.
Regards Alan

You never know Alan, we have also had a note on our Facebook page (Hornet Sailing UK) from Andy Horseley who crewed for Brian Hazelwood. Did you know him as well?

Yes I do know Alan his brother crewed for me at Thorpe bay when we camped in the ''kennel'' he kept pulling bits of the boat as he was in the parachute regiment at the time if I remember correctly.

Yes I knew Andy but haven't seen him for years. However we have just got in touch with each other through face book.
