Welcome To The Grampian Owners Marina
to visit our companion Grampian Discussion Group on Yahoo
No, the site is not
dead, just not very active. That is due to two reasons. I have been busy
with other projects and I have not been receiving many submissions from
you, the Grampian Owners. This site relies on input from the users be it
photos, stories, trip accounts or whatever but if I do not get anything
submitted, I can not add to the site. So please, before you take off in
your boats for the Summer, consider sending me some material I can post.
I continue to
receive stories of the failure of the cast aluminum fitting on the bow
to which your forestay and jib or furling gear attach. The latest report
is on a G28. If you look at
Item 14 on the G26 FAQ
page you will find some discussion on this subject and possible
alternatives for attaching your stay and jib. A
solution to the problem has just been added.
problems continue. This new story from Stainless Outfitters relates to
the failure of a newly built G30 fitting, built presumably using the wrong
aluminum alloy. You can read about this either on the General FAQ page or
the G30 FAQ.
Remember, rather than look through the whole site to see what has
changed, select the
Site Changes page for
information on what changes have been made.
I encourage regular visitors to the site to view the Log entries as there
are often new and prospective owners looking for advice from you all knowing
Grampian experts. Please take a look and see if you can assist.
Well it is it is over twelve years ago since this site was launched. It has
grown considerably over those years thanks to the information and photos
you have sent me.
I want to thank all those owners who have sent information and encourage
others to follow their example. I especially want to thank those people
who have made a donation towards the upkeep of the site. There are costs
associated with keeping it on a server and it does require time and
effort on my part which I am still willing to provide.
Don't forget, this site
depends upon your input of information and photos and of
donations to keep it going. Please help.
