Mr. Treloar sent us the e-mails below along with his photos. We thought everyone would enjoy reading about his Pocket Cruiser and its history.
Many years ago we received the photo on the left from the original builder, Mr. Davies. Mr. Davies built this Pocket Cruiser in 32 days (he also built a Triad in 11 days...). Mr. Treloar now owns the boat, and we'll let his e-mails give you the rest of the details!
The American System Three brand is excellent as it is very forgiving especially of atmospheric condition. Their glue is excellent, It will even go off properly in the wet and the cold doesn't seem to bother it.
Hello from Chris Treloar,
I thought you might like another photo of TITSAWORRI. Its taken at the beginning of a fun race on a classic boat regatta. The old boat held her own on the down wind mark and on the reach but got a bit left behind to windward, but that got sorted out by getting someone to go right up on the bow and getting the nose dug in. It always makes a difference. I am slowly learning the protocol on the bulletin board, it is all new to me.
Regards Chris. It is blowing about 40 knots here today so no sailing. Unusual weather for here
