    The auctioneers website has been updated (it seems to change almost hourly!) and the viewing times and dates have changed.

    https://www.sweeney-kincaid.com/Sale...px?SaleId=3112

    At the moment, with nine days to go, no bids have met the reserve prices.

    I don't know anything about insolvency but I do wonder if the reason for the reserve prices is to permit the auctioneers to sell the collection as a whole or in large chunks, which from the point of view of "heritage" would be best I think. One can see that the reed boats, proas, sampans, etc are of ethnographic / anthropological interest but the International Fourteens are of interest in terms of the history of small boat sailing, and so on.. They don't really "belong together" and I think the only reason that they are together is that the Exeter Museum collection was rescued by a wealthy man with an interest in classic and vintage dinghies.

    I'll be surprised if the auctioneers cover their costs.

    It doesn't seem the right approach to have taken.

    I think the cataloguing of Cardiff has been extended - Lowestoft still needs more work... new dates for viewings..

    I still don't believe that this sale is really going to happen.

    12 noon on the 21st is last time for bids for the collection as a whole apparently. It does feel a bit as if the online auction may be about putting pressure on someone who is going down that route....... hope so. Anyway, I am booked in for a visit to Eyemouth tomorrow, and looking forward to it.
