What you can advertise: Small ads are restricted to non-trade sales of Drascombes, or other boats based closely on John Watkinson's designs, or associated items. To protect and inform buyers, small ads for all boats should declare the brand (i.e Drascombe, Devon, Deben etc.), hull material and original build year and / or hull number where these are known. Pre RCD boats which do not have a Craft Identification Number usually have a number stamped on the stemhead or written on the back of the builder's plate.

How to place a small ad: Send the text of your advert by post to the address given in DAN or to the email above, in the format which can be seen on the small ads pages of DAN or on the website.

How much does it cost? 11.00 for 25 words 22 for 50 words for DA Members or 30/40 for non members) plus seller's name, location, telephone number and email address.
Non members wishing to advertise must provide full postal address, email address and telephone number with their advert. Your postal address will not appear in the advert but is required for your temporary membership
How to pay: Send a cheque payable to "Drascombe Association" to the address in DAN, or pay by Paypal on this page (scroll down) - note you do not require a Paypal account to do this.

What you get: Adverts will be placed on the website on receipt of payment, and will appear in the next DAN dependant on the copy deadline. Unless renewed by payment of another fee, ads will appear in one edition of DAN and will be removed from the website when we are notified that the item has been sold or when the succeeding edition of DAN is published. Things to note: PLEASE do let us know when your boat or other item is sold. This avoids unwanted emails and phone calls and saves unnecessary frustration for potential buyers. Please note that there is no advantage to advertising just prior to the DAN deadline as this means your advert will only appear on the website for a maximum of three months, and makes additional work for all concerned as we try to avoid DAN appearing with adverts for boats which have already been sold.

Adverts for goods valued up to 100 are FREE for DA Members, but appear in DAN only. These should be sent direct to the DAN Editor.
