Hi Gordon. No, it wasn’t the Palma one (was that Berthon), it was based in Plymouth. I now keep it in Falmouth and yes I am pleased to say I am enjoying the boat. I was surprised at her speed – for a heavy boat she doesn’t hang around (provided of course there is sufficient wind). I’m hoping to complete some cosmetic work and spend a little more time on board this year, weather permitting. Are you still looking for a 505 or have you found something else?
