|Muddy Paws Fri 25 Feb 2011 19:04:06|| We've seen a rather scruffy Manta 19 and love the class, just about perfect for us. Are there any others out there for sale - particularly if there is a really nice one for sale!|
|Muddy Paws Wed 02 Mar 2011 10:12:05||And we got it. Bought without seeing the keel which gets a look this weekend - hope that's OK. The red hull is very faded but a quick fix with Polytrol this season then sand and Toplac this winter. It comes with a 5hp Honda that weighs in at 27kg - surely that's huge overkill for such a light displacement boat?|

Congratulations on your new Manta.
I am also a new Manta owner and I have enjoyed a winter of sanding, painting, repairing, etc.
Still the keel to do (starts tomorrow) and counting down the days for the re-launch.
What sail number is yours, and where are you going to sail?
|Muddy Paws Wed 02 Mar 2011 22:17:14||I don't know what the sail number is yet! I'll look for it on Sunday. Sailing on the Deben river this year. I check the keel on Monday - we'll see then what the news is.|
