Neil you got there before me.

Mine is 1953 Hornet which spent 40 years in a shed. can be seen in all her glory at Baltic Wharf in Bristol on 19th April.

Currently, my oldest is only from 1959, a Firefly. Just bought another Firefly that is very young as she is from 1978. Other than that, a 1970 Int Moth, a 1970ish Puffin, a 1984 Mirror and a 1989 British Moth. The British moth is for sale, as she is too new...
Odd that no one has posted who owns a prewar boat yet, after all, there are 14's and N 12's out there. And no Thames A Rater sailors, either, who could push this back to Victorian or Edwardian times?

My oldest boat was built in 1936 - 14' 6" clinker day boat, gaff rigged, and still has the original bamboo spars.

My Contender is probably from 1969, before the class even existed in the UK (she was brought here from Melbourne in 2002).

It's a Miller and Whitworth, with a Goldspar mast.

Legend says there's the picture of a naked girl under the foredeck.

Since my earlier post I have acquired i14 k865 'Agamemnon', built in 1965 and also a marauder built in 1973 (matches the phantom, which I still have.) I have sold contender 473, which was replaced with 620, now also sold, and have instead 2359, a mere four year old.  We also have a streaker from 1988 and a kestrel from the late sixties, a simoun 445 from the seventies (probablement) and a relatively modern bashed in L2k, probably built in the early nineties.

My signature says it all....
the same, but different...
