OldJolly.JPGFREE BOAT - Available to view now - Cabin Cruiser 23ft - Here's a lovely 23ft clinker built wooden cabin cruiser with classic Sabb single cylinder diesel engine and gearbox with shaft drive and a really special reversing propellor.  This is a great project for those that know and love their boats as she is clinker built with mahogany top sides and canvas decks.  She is really very pretty and that Sabb engine is a delight and in working condition once some very basic recommissioning work is done.  She is already on hardstanding and she can be kept here for as long as you need while you undertake the project.  Alternatively, you can take her away at any time.  Come along and take a look - this really is a very pretty boat and such a worthwhile project - FREE BOAT - just ask for details
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Lysander.jpgFREE boat - Lysander 17 sailboat - ideal project - Here is a sailboat with a small cabin; it's a Lysander 17 as designed by Percy Blandford, twin bilge keels and is 17ft in length. This is a full project but when launched the boat would be ideal for estuary sailing and also for cruising on the River Thames and further afield including the Norfolk Broads. With its small cabin, it can easily accommodate overnighting or for just messing about on the water. These boats are set up for use with sails or with an outboard engine and any small outboard of around 4hp would be cheap to source, easy to fit, economical and would perfectly suit the boat. The boat comes with the aluminium mast as pictured. The hull and superstructure are wood and there is much work to be done albeit that most of the wood that needs replacing is simple, and cheap, plywood. These were boats designed to be home built so should be within the capability of a competent DIY'er. The photos were taken 29th January 2020 so are an accurate reflection of her current condition and I've tried to show the major areas needing working - this won't be a quick project but great fun and an ideal way to learn basic techniques. You are welcome to collect the boat within 7 days AT NO COST or keep the boat with us and work on her here. Our storage / mooring rate is £100 per month or you can take her away - whichever suits you. Come down and have a look around - FREE BOAT - just ask for details
