The Captains and their crew are working hard to get the boats ready for the new season. There are big things and little things that need attention on the boats – we have a big long list!
One of the things that the Playfair needs is a new lock on for the deck house door (part number 3523/BR/125/LH. from Davey and Co).
This particular lock comes from Davey and Co in the UK. What a fancy little hardware store! Their brand is quite prestiguous in the classic yachting and working sail world it would seem. They distribute their products to a few stores in the UK, two locations in the US, and amoung other places, even to a store in South Africa. But, alas, none in Canada are posted on their website!
The Playfair was built in 1973 in Kingston Ontario – and the lock was there from the begging. Queen Elizbeth II christened the Playfair.
[I am still laughing from a story that Mike Leigh told me about the day of the christening ceremony].
I wonder if Queen Elizabeth II noticed this fancy lock on the door that came all the way from the UK.
If you have a lock to give us for the door – or want to contribute the funds to order the lock from Davey and Co in the UK – please give the Toronto Brigantine office a call.
