The owners' comment that "From every bit of evidence we could gather after buying Green Pepper, it was apparent that she had been sailed very little, if at all,for a number of years. I think she was used as a liveaboard boat. The condition of the sail handling gear suggested that it hadn't been used for some time and significantly the pole on which the Rutland Generator was mounted fouled the mizzen boom. We refitted the boat extensively over 2013/2014 but due to other commitments were unable to sail her very much in either 2015 or 2016. In 2015 David Harding from Practical Boat Owner sailed the boat and wrote an interesting Sail Clinic article comparing the performance of the old sails against new One Sail Cruiser Laminates and the upgraded sail handling gear (article in Oct 2015 issue).
She has been out of the water for all of 2017 except to bring her round from the Deben to SYH. I am now suffering a health problem and also have a big committment to our motor racing program and my brother in law, with whom I share the boat, also now has other committments. We have therefore regrettably decided to sell Green Pepper and let someone else enjoy the benefits of our hard work upgrading her.
