Please don't regard him as an "expert"; he's getting quite old and thinks that "fadiddling fumble-putz" is a more accurate description.

    Merry Christmas to you as well, Ben, and thanks for providing such a great service with Panbo. The effort is much appreciated. I look forward to each new story, and have used your explorations to guide my own purchases frequently.

    Thanks, Preston! No Panbo today as I’m in NYC without a laptop. Tis the season. Best to all.

    Just found this reference to Tom Tit. When I was a lad I sailed her from the west country yard where she was bought by John Atkins, up to Lymington. She had not been in the water for at least 10 years, so she sat on a cradle and swelled for several day. We re-caulcked her, re-painted her and sailed her up the coast, outpacing a Contessa 32!
    Delighted to see she has been restored.
