    Love these old boat brochures… I wish I had been able to sail back then, but I was just a wee lad! Great line when they show the head with the caption “Big boat luxury…” nothing at all like a squat on a cedar bucket throne I suppose.

    Question for you Dylan: Did you have a couple of hot chicks show up when you bought the ‘ol slug like its shown on page two? A blonde and a brunette no less, along with what looks like enough luggage to last them all the way from the Solent down to the Bahamas! Put me down to crew on that voyage! Cheers.

      Strange that I have a nephew in Kinsale named Liam and niece shan, well what do you want to know about the Mirror Offshore as I too have one and just recently breathed life back into the old Volvo Penta MD1, bit late in the season I know but never mind.

    I too had a gorgeous Mirror Offshore called Feather and I had her in Lough Derg on the Shannon in Ireland for a few years. I bought her from Bray in Co Wicklow and had her for about three years in Mountshannon. Her papers said that she was first registered to the Mirror Newspapers and was a great little boat. The engine rarely worked though and I found out from the new owner it was due to a leak in the diesel line going to the engine – it always got air-locked. No wonder she stank of diesel as we did after a weekend living on her!

    I must say I would buy her back in a heartbeat! Keep up the good work and would love to see more of the boat in your videos!.

      the Mirror was great – except for the engine. The slug did have an overwhelming smell of diesel at all times. I loved the way the engine sounded and the heat and power it produced. Ultimately it was a 60 year old lump of metal waiting to get me. To have had a new Mirror with a new inboard would have been great. If you want to see more shots of the slug sailing the journey up the Nene has some shots Jill took from the shore
