Just bought a Frances 26'

Post by Bunarina »

Hi everyone,

My name is Pedro and I had bough a Frances 26.

I just moved the boat from the northeast of Spain to Barcelona, and will start very soon with a complete fine tunning.

I wish I can share with you all the improvements.

Here is a photo of the new member of the family:

Regards,

Pedro

Hi Pedro,
I have also just bought a Frances 26, and have started some upgrades. The first is to replace the old 8 HP Yanmar with a Beta 14, change the rig to masthead forestay and Solent stay, twin backstays and all 6mm. Fitting a Navik Windvane, Optimus kerosene stove and new instruments. I single handed her 500nm from Singapore and loved it.

Hi Pedro,
What a beautiful ship you have. Congratulations for having exquisite taste in boats!
Also to the new owner of Jill....I have really enjoyed the great YouTube’s from her previous owner ( assume it’s the same “Jill!”)
I’ve owned Wildwood since 2013 and have enjoyed every millisecond of it.
All the best with these special boats.....Chuck Paine’s Mona Lisa. We all won the lottery!
