The second order for a transom board and Mast Thwart for a Mk 2 Longboat are heading for Bahrain. Henry has an abandoned Longboat out in the ‘sand state’ needing a lot of love and tender care. At JLJ we are going to help him with that process.
This first consignment is being personally collected by Henry just after Christmas and taken back in his baggage allocation! The second order will include the centre plate case top board and one of our Lugger / Longboat Biminis, this later in the winter on Henry’s next visit back to the UK.
The JLJ Bimini will be on the website very shortly. This fitted sun shield is not so much needed in the north of the UK, but those who have chartered our Luggers in the South Ionian Sea will testify that these are as essential as the outboard engine.
There are to date eight other Drascombes in the Ionian area, a few already with orders for these Biminis which I will deliver this April when I drive out to start the 2023 Dragon Drascombe charter season.
