| John Thu 02 Jul 2009 23:24:37|| Hi, am in the process of "reviving" a Manta which I originally acquired about 12 years ago!!! It is number 1056 built in 1977 and so is quite old.Any views on changing a boats name?I know it is supposed to be bad luck but I find the name"Watson's Lady" a bit ........unexciting! i would love to rename it "Hollygolightly", who was a much more interesting character than the venerable wife of a detective's sidekick! Yes I have the same problems as many of your members,corroded keel plate,leaky window seals etc, but the first moves have been made to recify these but it is excruciatingly slow. I just want to get out on the water!!!!!!|
Anyway will post further as soon as I have something new to report. Great site. Learned a lot about my boat. Brilliant!
