Free NASA VHF radio
Nasa VHF SX 35 radio, found in Martin Hopton’s attic.
I’ve been helping Sheila (Martins widow) clearing out the large quantities of stuff Martin had stored away.
I suspect this radio was kept after Martin upgraded, so I don’t know if it works and there are no instructions; but these can be downloaded from the Nasa website.
No payment, just collect from Chichester

Free radio and chartplotter
Now surplus, Navman VHF 7200 DSC radio and Tracker 5500i chartplotter with C Map chart. Complete with all instructions and boxes mounted in a removable box.
Navman has not been made for several years, so repairs etc may be a problem, both items were working when I finished with them last year.
I don’t want any money, just collect or arrange delivery from Chichester.

Garmin hand held VHF radio for sale
Model: Garmin VHF 720
As my Parker 275’s main VHF radio does not have DSC capability, to increase safety I have recently purchased a handheld VHF radio with built-in DSC. This means my faithful handheld Garmin VHF radio is now looking for a new home even though it is in as-new condition and has hardly been used. It spent most of its life in our sealed flare box in case we had to abandon ship in a Titanic moment. We didn’t even use it in the cockpit as the main radio has a remote microphone. Power is supplied by six AA batteries and I always kept spare batteries in the flare box. No tools are required to open the battery compartment. If you prefer a rechargeable battery, these are readily available on Amazon UK for £18.70. Although no longer made by Garmin, this is a high quality radio in perfect condition. I’ve owned it since new.
I am advertising it for sale firstly to PSSA members. If the radio is not sold within the PSSA, I will then advertise it elsewhere. Price: £60.
Batteries are not included. The radio does come with a simple thin protective home-made cloth sleeve.
Here’s what Garmin has to say about the radio
“The VHF 720 is a small, stand-alone radio transceiver that, unlike many handheld radios, can survive constant saltwater spray or even an accidental dunk in the bait well. The battery compartment is sealed off from the main circuitry so the unit remains water tight — even while the batteries are being changed. The battery tray slides out completely for easy loading, and accommodates both alkaline and NiCad batteries. The VHF 720 boasts a unique "knobless" design for simple operation which allows simultaneous squelch and volume adjustment. A large, backlit display gives crisp detail even in direct sunlight, perfect for communications in open fishing boats. All of the unit's key functions, including squelch and volume adjustment, channel selection, channel scanning, weather alert, and Tri-Watch monitoring, are accessible via a water resistant keypad.”

Kemps No3 Genoa
Sail bought from a fellow PSSA member 3 years ago with the intention of using it as a Blade Jib for our P275.
Although some years old, it has never been used and appears as good as new.
We believe that the sail was originally specified as a No3 Genoa for a SS26 which is slightly larger than specified for a P275 Blade jib by Parkers.
Sail dimensions are: Luff 9.4m, Foot 3.5m, Bolt Rope 7mm dia.
Indianna’s furling gear requires a 5mm Bolt Rope. The plan was to get our local sailmaker to change the bolt rope but we didn’t get round to it and, three years on, we haven’t missed it and have decided to sell the sail.
Happy for someone to test fit on their boat before deciding to purchase. Could be collected from either Deacons (Hamble) or Fleet (Hants).
A new sail would cost circa £1k. We paid £300 but would be happy to accept reasonable offers.
