Hi everyone

N2462 Sorcerers Apprentice -  Its Old school and a few years ago I know that I asked about this boat but would still be keen to get hold of it were it to become available - if it exists in any state.
Even if it was scrapped it would put my mind at rest. Subsequently, I  owned 2544  Ogre (the  stitch and tape 4 plank version of 2462 I believe), just as that boat disintegrated before my eyes and was broken up. I  Should have listened to outside advice on that one!  Sorcerers apprentice, built better than Ogre -  where are you? Please put me of of my misery. After building my own  I simply could not regret selling 2462! My current 12 an old Paper dart  despite its obvious  positive points,  sturdy, fun, simple , easy maintenance etc etc isn't the same as rot, leaks, high maintenance. I sold 2462 early 80s to a waterskier who wanted something for when it was too windy for water-skiing!   Come on you class stalwarts - where is it?

Hello All

Vintage construction help

I am trying to cure an annoying leak in my 1967 Wyche and Coppock Mk14 around the garboard/hog joint

From underneath I can see damp timber in places along the keel/hog joint
I was planning on reaming out the solid timber CB case sides/hog/keel assembly by 6mm each side to a depth of 65mm and then line the widened area with marine ply and subesequently  seal the interior plank/hog joints.

Before I do this I'd like to know how others have approached similar issues. I'm concerned  I may  come across hidden screws in the original build.

Any ideas out there?   I really do not want to have to remove the whole cb case out of the boat.


HI everyone.

Does anyone know the whereabouts of this  12.  I'm keen to know  as it was once mine

Hopefully it has survived


Hi all,
Does anyone know the whereabouts (if it still exists) of N2462 Sorcerers Apprentice?
I sailed this boat many years ago until I switched to a new fangled Paper Dart.
Really would like to have another go as I recall it was an "interesting" sail. Thanks  Paul ;D
