    Default Peanuts - our Oyster 26

    Here she is at anchor on 11 July this year, in Port Mor on the Isle of Muck.

    She's 26ft and one of only 50 odd ever built (back in 1979) before they decided they were making them too well and couldn't make money on them. Designed with the IOR rules in mind, she remarkably quick and roomy for her length and frequently overtakes larger boats going in to wind.



    (Just about to put the anchor ball up, honest).

    Unfortunately Sir, you are incorrect.

    Fortunately there are as may boat designs as there are opinions on what makes a pretty boat.

    Can't beat a Co32 though..... and anyone who disagrees is just wrong
    whatever you say pal

    Finally got round to adding Esper to this great post. She's an Oyster 435 1989 ketch cutter (coach-roof version).

    Erm, hate to admit I'm one of those still watching this thread
    Any chance you could post that pic in the slightly larger format allowed here ?
    Even without my specs I can see it's a bloody nice pic, but it would be even nicer if I didn't have to put the specs on to see it properly

    Hi sixpence. The original is tucked away on an old external hard drive and I'm at anchor...but I'll see what I can do

    "Carise" - my much loved long-keeled MacWester Rowan 22 from 1971: still going strong. She was originally supplied and registered to a Mr Upton of St Albans; then briefly transfered to a Mr Randall of Radlett in July 1974 before coming into the ownership of a Michael Draper of Potters Bar and Marion Andrews of Wood Green in January 1975; A M.Whitticombe of Bristol was the owner in 1999 and a J.Barrington of Chelmsford owned her around 2001. I don't have any records between 1975 and 1999!

    I bought her in Bursledon Bridge in Jan 2005 from a Mr Layfield of Suffolk, and brought her around to Cardiff. At some stage "Carise" was renamed "Coconut", but I gave her back her original name.

    If anyone has any more history of my lovely yacht I would love to hear from you.
