Minxy - or "Langemark" as she originally was and now is again - is coming up for sale on eBay in November 2017.

www.langemark.co.uk  has more information.

More than slightly Off Topic...

Nil illegitimi carbonundrum (ain't Latin but sounds good!) don't let the B*****s grind you down....

But.....My favourite Latinish expression is

Nobo dylo vesa mar tarse.......

(Perhaps the discrepancy is the translation from Latin into Dutch then from Dutch to English)



Ummm, no expertise (I'm learning Latin GCSE level, I've got as far as Caecilius est pater LOL) just lucky finding a Latin to English translator that helped me find what our boat name meant!!

Luctor is the same class as the one advertised for sale on this Site, they were also known as 50miler's, the aft cabin on Luctor is as she was built  however the wheelhouse was very narrow and in front of that was the hold with a mast and lifting arm attached to it. Hamlet was a good murder play and would you believe a suspected Murderer hid on this boat for three months whilst the police searched for him, he eventually went down for Manslaughter!!!

Hi All,

This is getting serious; first latin and now Shakespear! Oh well

You couldn't be certain because

"This is the very ecstasy of love". - ( Hamlet Quote Act II, Sc I).

I'll say no more because

"Brevity is the soul of wit". -  Hamlet Quote (Act II, Scene II).

Hi Christian,

If you owned a Shakespearian Male Class and a Shakespearian Female class would you be able to make lots of little baby boats and if so would they be male, female or just confused.

Hi d-zine, The blurb on the bmpt ad was written by Philip Simons and gives accurate specs etc, however I think the Shakepearian Males Class differed from the Shakespearian Females Class but I am unsure how exactly. Don has a book with a list of all the names of both classes, which hopefully he can reproduce here for us, unfortunately the book does not give much more information about these boats other than the list of names. I'll do some digging.
