Post by bobassel » Sun Nov 05, 2006 7:13 pm

Hello Cees

It seems that there is not much time for t.v. watching
in the near future! :roll:
It seems a lot of work for you to do before sailing with this
new project1
But!!, I'm very curious.
Where did you find this GPA?
Can you show us more pictures of the interieur?
What do you know abouth her history?

Thanks Mithril / Bob,

I think it will take 2 or 3 weeks when it arrive in Holland. I bought it in the USA on the east coast, it was used in salt water. I will use all the mech. parts for your (Mithril) hull and use one side from this hull to put on the wall of my garage.
More pictures from the inside soon.

Cees,

Thanks for sharing the photos. Amazing that so many more gpa projects are showing up these last years.
Looks like many parts are there and together with the hull from Mithril you can make a nice gpa again I think.
Good luck with your project.
Regards,

Leo Verhagen
