We expanded what we offer and now do the Harken deck kit, Marlow lines and also the North Sail.

Dix 43 sailing with the HBYC Admirals Sword fleet

The storms of the week before calmed down and Sunday was calm and with a light breeze.

A Dix 43 in wood/epoxy construction was also out in the bay, sailing her own course, she left the Admirals Sword fleet well alone.

The Dix 43 was launched January 17th 2000, proof enough that such builds can be a great success and over the period require little by way of attention.
