This is a restoration project. The previous owner died before he could finish the refit of the the interior.The hull is in good order, and was painted two years ago but not used since. The BMC 38hp motor is in very good order. Mast and rigging are also in good order. Apart from a genoa (missing) the sails are there.
The present owner reckons the boat could be back in the water within a few months.

We have had a call for advice from Colin Ennis, who needs to know what propellor he should fit. His Countess is a fin keel model with a 30hp engine. If you have an answer for Colin, please e-mail him at firstname.lastname@example.org regarding size, pitch (3-bladed).
A prospective member has asked about fitting a holding tank to his Countess 28 preparatory to taking the boat to the Mediterranean. Does any one have experience of this modification? If so, please contact Tony Kerry with details.
