Popular on another forum I frequent is lists of musical instruments people have owned... So why not boats:
These are just the ones I sailed reasonably seriously

Gull (built by my father - but actually I mainly crewed in 11+ in those days)
Cherub Hawksworth 2 (bought s/h)
Cherub Farr (bought s/h, still have, but needs total rebuild)
Cherub Italian Bistro (pro/am built new)
Harrier (bought s/h)
Plus Plus (one off 14ft with generous wings pro/am built new)
Cherub Italian Bistro (still the same boat, much updated)
International Canoe (bought s/h)
Int Moth Vintage modified Skol (bought s/h)

I was going to put a comment for those that had significant changes/rebuilds while I owned them, but on reflection it was all of them except the Gull!

Ha, good idea here goes.
My first dinghy was a Musto Skiff (Dinghy sailing pah how difficult can it be?), a mate loaned me it, in the end I gave it back, a bit tricky to learn in.
So Laser 3k Used (it works the same as a Musto Skiff)
RS500, New ditto
Alto, New ditto.
Blaze Used, 2nd attempt at single handing
RS100 New Read about it being developed on this forum
V2
Laser EPS (for the sea)
Solution (for the lake)
Farr 3.7 to re visit trapezing on the sea, now I have some boat handling skills to fall back on in emergencys. Sadly it's got to go, totally inadequate as an all round boat, it only works when its v windy.

Now Looking at either caving in and buying a Contender or having one last go at designing something that would do it all, sea and lake. Went over to the Contender nationals to have a look this very afternoon some very nice boats there, then I helped pull them up the beach...
