Seafly 231 – Chloe
Nigel Izzard writes (May 2018):
My father Alan Izzard recently passed away, I am trying to find a solution for our Seafly.
My Dad hand made the boat himself many years ago, he might have got the hull or a kit from Devon it was so long ago… I helped my father build it in our garage in Welwyn Garden City; many nights’ sanding is what I remember.
The boat was registered 231, named Chloe. We used to sail at the Nationals for many years, never a winner, but always as a family full of enjoyment. [The boat] has been parked at Fishers Green Sailing Club for many years and is in need of restoration. The boat has a road trailer and wood mast and boom stored at Welwyn Garden City along with sails etc. At Fishers Green the boat has a metal mast as well, and also a launch trailer.
I would like to find somebody to restore the boat and get it back on the water if possible; not interested in making any money from the boat, just would like to know it was back sailing, and it would be great to hear its back with the other Seafly’s.
Editor’s Note: we hope to have further details of this Seafly on or about 19th May 2018.
