Hi

I have a garage project this winter and so some major "life laundry" was called for. In the "sailing junk" pile I have a bunch of stuff that will be going to the tip in a couple of weeks, but on the off chance that anybody has a use for this stuff I attach a list. Let me know if you are interested in anything (markb14.762 at gmail) and I'll bring it to the club. All items cost £1 to the RNLI

- rooster buoyancy aid - black - great condition - suit 11-15 year old [TAKEN]
- various sail bags for dinghy sized sails
- various battens 300-900mm - including an original set of laser battens!
- 2 teak boxes for port/starboard navigation lights on cabin top or in the shrouds
- brass oil pump for winterising
- 15L blue fender
- anchor trip float - white and blue
- mooring chain with plastic pipe anti-chafe and pickup-up buoy (orange)
- 20'+ of VHF cable
- two hemp ropes (8mm and 10mm) - not sure how long - useful for practising traditional splicing or perhaps smoking!
- various cruising guides to channel ports, Sweden, Denmark and Aland Islands - circa 1996
- 2m ronstan alloy tiller extension
- RS200 blue polycotton cover - needs a coat of fabsil or something similar
- Merlin RS200 polycotton cover - ditto
- Variety of stainless steel wire shrouds, forestays and jib halliards from 505, RS200, RS400, Falmouth Working Boat) - perhaps best thought of as a source of stainless steel wire
- Gill boots (Aigle style) white/grey - size UK 8/EUR 42 - old but probably worn twice [TAKEN]
- 1 x childs and 2 x adult crewfit lifejackets - old but tested ok last year - will need rearming [ 1 TAKEN]
- pot luck bag of cruiser type ropes - 8-12mm - probably nothing long enough for a halliard or jib/mainsheet - but a few longer bits
- pot luck bag of dinghy type ropes - <8mm - ditto
- 2 x Merlin spinnakers - one red, one black - not competitive, but in pretty good condition and no holes - OK for practice or cruising
- 1 x RS200 spinnaker - pink - could no longer be classified as a spinnaker - so really just a large piece of floppy pink sailcloth!

Hi Richard
Probably easiest if I leave them in the committee room - I'll be dropping them off this Sunday.

Don't know, I'll ask! Mooring/anchor stuff and cordage perhaps? How thick and long is the mooring chain?

Probably a couple of metres (it attaches underneath the mooring buoy) and strong enough to hold an eight ton cruiser
