Making a Nav Cab

Andy Powell shows us how: One thing that appealed to me about the Wanderer, was its adaptability. My previous boat, a Laser 2000, was excellent in many ways, but offered little scope for modification.  In short, I wanted a boat I could drill holes in.  My 1993 Anglo Marine Wanderer W1138 (named Medusa by her first owner) has proven an ideal test bed for several projects, and one of the first has been to make a cabinet to store equipment for cruising.   As a former cadet-officer and an instructor, I have acquired quite a bit of kit that I like to take out on cruises.  I want things to hand in the boat, but not under my feet.  I also wanted to be able to store all these things tidily on a shelf in my garage when not in use, and to be readily transportable to and from the

Website Changes and Updates to Members Database

Having taken over from Mike Hamilton back in April I wasted no time updating the website.  To those among you who are keen eyed or interested I have upgraded the system from an out of date MS Frontpage editor to a more current WordPress site.  This new system has more powerful software which enables a plethora of options we can choose from. One of these we have been trialling is a members section which we are going to roll-out to the members very soon. Many thanks to James Myers, Robert Gilmore, Tim Young and Peter Melling for being my beta testers.  This trial is more or less complete and in the coming days you should receive an automated email from the site. Having a logon on the website has a number of key benefits including members only content, mailing lists and forums but primarily that the members’ database is held on

John’s Jottings Feb 21

A message from the Chairman of the Wanderer Class Owners Association UK Well, we finally made it into 2021! I don’t recall a new year being so eagerly anticipated, but now it’s here we find that not much has changed so far as the pandemic is concerned. We have still more lock-down restrictions, although these are now offset by the hope of a successful roll-out of the various vaccines. Nevertheless, I hope that this message finds you safe and well. This magazine issue is to provide you with the necessary information for our Annual General Meeting. This will take place using the Zoom platform so that you can attend from the comfort of your own home. You will receive an invitation to the email we have on record for your membership or by post where we do not have one.  Your membership details we have on file are enclosed with
