HI All

I have just taken over the guardianship of WyeSeal, a 1974 Mk 3 seal I think (as has outboard well, though could have been retro-fitted).

If anyone knows more on the vessel history I would be very interested !!

Also keen to know the Sail No.!

Cheers Andy

Hi Andy.

I have trawled through the files i have and have found a 22 "WyeSeal"

She is quiet an early one # 24 actually a mark 1, originally built with a transon hung outboard, as you mentioned she has had a retro fit well in the cockpit....

Her two owners are both from the Gwent , first owner had her for 4 years and the second for 6 years after that the trail goes cold, as she has not been a member until now with you joining

i hope this info helps
cheers and enjoy her
Peter Lowry

ps handbook and info in the post in next few days

Cheers Peter.

I know previous owner thoight 1974 build thoigh Lucille my first Seal #33 (about to go on market for sale!) Was 1971 build which I quite liked as a Decimal baby like me!!

Wye Seal has oufboard well but I am considering whether better transom hung again as I sail 99% of time and outboard well mount does add bit of drag!

Interesting as I have been comparing the two and WyeSeal had about 1" longer aft cabin windows than Lucille. Quite odd as this is part of thd deck moulding which I dont think they would havd changed by such mininal amount unless thry were using two moulds? But again they would surely have standardised this for common aluminium window framing and glazing! So but if a mystery!

Anyway I would bd very keen to find out more on the detsils anx history etc!!

Thanks again Andy.
