It's great to see all the offers of help - I have a 6 week wait for a trailer though!!!

It will take me that long to make enough space - anyone want a lovely wooden GP14 sailing boat for next to nothing???

Those of you that have done this... do your trailers have rollers? I use bunks and I am wondering if this might make it that much harder... especially trying to get it back onto the trailer...

I wonder about doing this every year as my boat will fit into my garage if I remove the A-fame and take it off the trailer. I've even considered sorting out some kind of frame and hoist inside the garage so I could just hoist it off, but I suspect that that's more trouble than it's worth...

If you need to take it off the trailer to fit it in your garage, where is the benefit of having the hoist inside the garage?

LOL... I can back it in, but the trailer tongue sticks way out and I'm not keen to saw a hole in the door for it~ So I figure I could back it in, hoist it onto some blocks and pull the trailer back out.

At my old place, I would store it in the garage for the winter, but pushed the boat in nose first, and stuck the tongue out a hole in the back wall and into a garden. In my new place, the trailer would stick into the bathroom!

cod - I know someone who was talking about changing over his boat to a GP14 for next season, i assume he was thinking of a 2nd hand GRP one but if its in good nick he might be interested. I can put the two of you in touch if you want.

Yes please - the only snag is that there is no trailer for it. I could deliver a reasonable distance using my mate's car trailer.

the boat is stunning - just needs a bit of revarnishing in places. it's never been on the water - was built by a technical college as a project and never been outside!!!

I would keep it but I need the room - unless I work out a way to hang it from the ceiling - the beams are huge steel girders!!!

Ah, I see - it's a length, rather than height issue.

OK will pass it on... he should be able to move it if he is interested as he has an RS400 and his mate has a couple of herons... he wants a gp14 as thats the standard boat they race at his club.

I'll probably be around til January/February time mate. I'm available on nights and my wife sometimes comes down during my time off so I can help you then too.

Let me know if you need a hand and when and I'll see what I can do?

Polwart is right - was looking for some plastic for maintainability.

Any idea if there are sails, mast etc? And what nick they are in?

And what's she painted and varnished with -? 1 part or 2?

Presumably no covers?

What about bouyancy bags, sail no and measurement certificate?
