Additional Patrol Boat
On one or two occasions last season our existing safety boat was hard pressed to 'cover' the racing fleet and some of our newcomers sail training above the upstream mark. This was raised in committee and the decision was made to look for another suitable boat.
    After looking at one or two 'maybes' Graham found a Dory over at Ashtead that seemed to fit the bill. Because yours truly lives in Epsom I was asked to go and take a look.
    It turned out to be a 13ft. Dell Quay Dory powered by a 35hp. Johnson Seahorse. The boat had its own road trailer complete with a winch. The next day I bought it and towed it back to the club. It needs a good clean up and a paint job but basically it's a sound boat that will be used as a backup to our existing boat.
    There are training issues involved with the use of this craft and its helms are likely to be restricted to certain individuals.
