Hello Alan,
What a surprise! You have always been the 'Senior TS 240 Trappist' and in my 15 years with Nautibuoy have always found you knowledge and enthusiasm so helpful. Are you changing boats or giving up sailing?
I will put the word around at DQ to see if any prospective buyers.
Best wishes
Paul

Thanks Paul!

After the worst 2 years of health issues among family and friends (Including my racing crew of 45 years) we have to slow down a bit.  Very sad as Ocean Air is in fine form and ready to go, but needs must.

Best Wishes,

Alan.

Hi Alan,
Sorry to hear of your problems with health issues. Makes it tough when long standing crew affected as its difficult to envisage a replacement even if you don't really want to start over!
No specific interest in Ocean Air at DQ but will keep mentioning her when opportunity arises.
Best wishes,
Paul

Sorry to hear we are losing you from our dwindling crew of Trappists. You are one of the few for who's help I have been ever grateful. My boat is one of the earlier ones so the keel is a bit different but your comments set me on the right road when the boat needed me to go to work on the keel.

I am sure your boat must be an absolute bargain  at the price you are asking but I know there just don't seem to be as many people interested as when we originally bought our boats. I guess you have to have actually sailed a TS240 to know what a thorobred it is and such a delight to helm.

Thanks Jonathan!

Like you, I am surprised that there aren't more TS240 enthusiasts about.  I know I'll never have another boat with such superb handling, pace and upwind ability, but needs must sadly.

Price reduced again and now on ebay here;

Very Best,
