My wife and I recently (May 2019) purchased a 1995 Oyster 55 - Magic Dragon. We are in the process of preparing her for a circumnavigation with our three young children, with a departure date of May 2021. If anybody would like to swap Oyster 55 info or just have a general chat, please post!
Wishing everyone a lovely Christmas,

It would be of interest to many if you documented your planned projects to bring an almost 25 year-old boat with good bones into circumnavigation readiness.
It may sound like I am just adding to your work load, but I would suggest, that in the writing up, you will fine tune your ideas and plans.
Please also feel free to bring the questions you might encounter to the Forum.
My best, Dick Stevenson, s/v Alchemy

We have a Bowman 57 ketch built in 1976. She was designed by Holman & Pye before they went on to design Oysters. She's a great boat and we have a really good Facebook group and page for Bowman 57 owners. We have almost every Bowman 57 built represented in the group. We have shared many original documents and lots of ideas. If you don't get traction here, you might try Facebook.
Happy New Year and happy sailing!
