Wing sail and mast plus bits for sale

 My old 24 foot Henemoa had to be scrapped, but the replacement mast, foresail reefing, wing sail and foresail are available. I LIVE IN Exmouth, Devon, England. There are also a couple of anchors (mud and rock), a Johnstone outboard motor, some fenders and a box of bits. Open to offers (it would be nice to see it on another boat).

The stuff would need to be collected from here, so contact me for photos if you're interested.

Cheers Tony
