Re: An offer you can not refuse.

Out of interest , what sort of price would be 'reasonable' for a similar in average restorable condition? (apart from the obvious answer - 'whatever some one will pay' ) I have a small (but growing) collection of Seagull and would love to own one. (Any offers!)

Re: Seagull Thames run Lechlade to Teddington 123 miles.

How about just a two day trip to start with so the inexperienced flockers (like myself) could iron out any problems ? Start and finishing at the same point would also solve the transport problems.

Glass Fibre supplier Surrey/Sussex

If anyone is the Surrey area is looking for glass fibre products (boat repair or making) I can recommend 'Fi Glass' of Station Road, Edenbridge as being very helpful - they can supply all the resins, matting and tape and freely give advice. (They also make the Caterham 7 bodies).

Re: longest run

I am new to all this but the Thames trip sounds interesting. I have collected a number of 40+ over the last year and also have access to a Gull dinghy and a GP14 ..would either of these be suitable?
