In the summer of 2020, it turned out that a long-cherished wish of mine came true. After all, I have time to go sailing.

Pretty quick it was also clear, that , I wanted a Lynaes 14. I found a beautiful one „online“ in Denmark.

Jens was offerig his „Frøkken Stage" in Viddelev (near Roskilde, Denmark).

End of August I brought her to Germany.




Quickly prepare for transport, before the rain.



Ready to go.



I even got an old pamphlet from the old Lynaes boatyard.




In the meantime, the inventory is done, paperwork is almost completed and the boat

is in the shed for winter. From next year on, the boat will be named "Hobbit".

Sailing area will be Flensburg Fjord and the North Sea.

I will keep you updated.

"Hobbit" has been modified with an Epod from Epropulsion.

For video, just click on picture below.





Last year the EPod was installed - which, by the way, has proven itself - it was time for the replacement of the cockpit cover this year. (Anniversary year! "Hobbit" is 50 years old this year). The old and faded and stiff cockpit-cover was replaced by the new deep blue fabric tarpaulin that hardly takes up any space when folded and is no longer fastened with snaps but with Tenax buttons.




End of season 2023.



My rubbing strip is due to be replaced this winter - removing the old strip went quickly and now I also understand why algae seemed to keep settling in the seam. Enough nutrients had accumulated. The high-pressure cleaner then did the rest.
Then to the topic: Where can I get a new moulding? The internet? Not particularly helpful, but Axel was able to help with a few contacts. I found what I was looking for in Denmark - with the current owner of the Lynaes shipyard. At the same time, correspondence had developed with

After receiving my sample, they finally produced 15m of white rubber rubbing strip (Item number is 20233612) and sent it to me. Cost was very good - half the price that was asked for by the Lynaes shipyard.
Tested with a short piece - details will follow when fully fitted in spring.
