    Love reading these old reviews.

    Also, haven’t second hand yacht values dropped in value??

    Wonderful source of information leaving, for me, only two questions unanswered (unless I missed it). What are the liberty masts made from and does the outboard tilt back sufficiently to clear a rope from the prop? Thank you for posting these articles.

    the Liberty has aluminium masts and the Minstrel has wooden ones. You cannot tilt a long shaft unless the rudder is raised – then you could get to the prop failry easily – but the quicket way toclear it would be to whip the engine out into the cockpit and clear it – a short shaft outboard will tilt up enough to get to the prop

    Dear Dylan,

    great material. Wonderful to see this odd charming little double ender. It must be quite rare. One thing though: Page 72 of the double facing page with the stem of the Minstrell is missing.

    I am sailing the double ender Marsvin of designer Peter Bruun: http://denlillegris.wordpress.com

    Thanks for enjoyable films circum navigating England!

    sorry about that…. I was sent the scans by another sailor so I guess we lost a bit of the boat

    do you have inboard on your boat or an outboard in a well
