For Sale Small Print / Posting Instructions (or Video)

If Posting this is the small print

We really appreciate the regular use of the second hand listing pages and we’ve been working hard to ensure that this is easy to use and gives a quick response.  We’ve added Paypal to enable you to pay by card and it’s great to see you starting to use this feature. 

However we’d like to remind you that a little bit of patience is required with these new features, if you upload an advert it WILL NOT appear immediately even if you have paid by card.  This because a HUMAN, not a computer needs to approve your advert.

We do this to make sure you are not selling your children, personal services or Columbian nose candy as all of these sort of things are illegal and we don’t want our beautiful site spammed. 

So if your advert doesn’t appear immediately, please don’t up load another. It hasn’t appeared because it hasn’t been approved by one of the two or three HUMANS who do this! 

Please note we do not deal with third party contracted web developers to place adverts on this site we only accept adverts from members or Flying Fifteen owners on these pages.

Thanks for listening

The management!

Posting Instructions
Image Preparation

Before even starting to post the advert prepare your images to use on the website. Most images from a phone will be between 5-8MB in size. Whilst the system will accept these, they will take ages to down load to a phone for the viewer. We recommend you use some editing to reduce the image file size (to <500KB) and image dimensions (largest dimension 1000 pixels). Google "image resizer" to find a free online service if required.

Flying Fifteen 1502 - Fforceps

Previous Article Flying Fifteen 647 - September Song
Next Article Flying Fifteen 1632 For Sale £600.00 ono. Flying Fifteen 1632 For Sale £600.00 ono.

Located in Hertford

Flying Fifteen 1502 - Fforceps was built from the same Burgess built mould as FF647 - September Song. The hull is diagonal cold moulded and then fore & aft strip planked in Mahogany. Resorcinol Formaldehyde glue was used throughout in its construction. The boat has been little used in its lifetime and for at least the last 20 years has been under a heavy duty cover.

All sails are included along with a braked trailer.

Given the length of time in storage, it is likely that a reasonable amount of work will need to be undertaken to restore Fforceps to its former pristine and well made state. If the boat is not found a new home it is likely that the boat will be broken up as the owner has moved house and can no longer accommodate it.

No cost is involved with the sale of this boat with the hope that it will find a new home with someone who is prepared to spend some time in restoring it to its original condition.
