Boat items for sale

Caroline Howe has made a start on working through the boat bits Nigel assembled over a lifetime of sailing. 

The pricing of those items has changed recently. Instead of "make me an offer", unless otherwise specified, it is now "if an item is useful to you, please donate something direct to the RNL according to what the item is worth to you". No need to say how much - just donate according to how useful an item ends up being for you. This is because Caroline would prefer to see items re-used at SYC is possible but anything that doesn't go soon will end up on Apollo Dock.

Unless specified otherwise, all items are in "well used" condition - as you might expect!

If you want to have a better look at any of the items let Caroline know and that can be arranged (and clicking any photo will show a full resolution version of the photo).

If you are interested in any of the items or want any more details, email Caroline using the contact form at the end of this page.
