is for Sale
All the deck beams are now in but unfortunately time and finances do not allow me to finish the restoration and she is for sale. The hull has had a lot of work done on it and below is a spec of this work.
I am looking to sell her for £12,000.
She is currently in Melton boatyard, Woodbridge, where the storage fees are cheap.
Presently the hull stops at the top plank and then you have the deck beams. Next job is a covering board and then bulwark stanchions.
Two beam shelves have been constructed the whole length of the boat, one at deck level and second further on turn of bilge through bolted into the timbers.
All deck beams are in place through bolted into top beam shelf. The planking on the top side is in good order needs caulking and paying with red lead, I have just given the planking a new coat of Black Tar. There is a stock of karowing timber planks for decks 14 ft x 1 " there is also a stock of 5/8" pitch pine various spare pitch pine beams.
BMC 3.8 water cooled engine, believe reconditioned repainted currently out of boat.
This hull is a beautiful fast shape and it is basically all new so when you have finished the deck and if you kept the interior simple in the fishing smack way then it should not be so much work and cost and you will have a fantastic cruising gaffer.
I have got access for lead for ballast you will need approx 7 tons - I know someone that makes up ingots to fit and he is reasonable.
Everything for this boat should be done like a working boat and fisherman that had these boats built were not wealthy but were very sensible, we can obtain green oak locally very reasonably.
Look forward to hearing from anyone that could be interested in her.
