    Default Some wooden boats (mostly)

    Thought I might stick photos of boats I've come across, some might like to see.
    Caution most will be working style boats.

    Start with one I owned for a while, ex Danish fishing boat (Annette Lomborg), previous owner fitted the wheelhouse, I "just" had to fit it out, sadly time and circumstance conspired against me, plus a bit shipworm.

    Custom house quay, my Grandfather was a customs officer here for while, and some might recognise the Chain Locker pub!!
    Behind this view was where James Wharram (RIP) set off on his Atlantic crossing, made famous in his book Two Girls, Two Catamarans

    Klevia, another old Danish boat with 2cylinder hot bulb engine. I met the previous owners briefly, proper eccentrics in a good way.

    Another more modern Danish boat in Hartlepool marina, in very well kept order, I believe she's up for sale.

    Something a bit more thought provoking.
    These were a couple of boats left on a local beach that were used by people crossing the English Channel. One looks to be stolen from a fishing boat. The other black one is one made for the people smugglers, very poorly put together, the floor was half fallen out. These were found on an early morning dog walk, they crossed one of the busiest shipping channels at night in poorly constructed inflatables completely overloaded. Utterly desperate

    Another I owned briefly in an effort to avoid being a landlubber, SWMBO had other ideas, she's the sensible one thankfully.
    Last heard of being broken up as the owners were jailed for attempted people smuggling
    She had some interesting history being built in the Shetlands and working in the North sea/Atlantic

    FB_IMG_1670449937515.jpg

    Another Danish boat I wanted buy but the sensible head overruled my heart once again. She's shown here at a Yard that's part working yard part museum in Bristol UK, well worth a visit if you're in the area

    This was taken near Woodbridge in Suffolk. I believe she was rescued and undergoing restoration

    A trip down memory lane(early 90's), the first Arun Class lifeboat, being relaunched from Falmouth Boat Co. slipway, after she was re-engined, mostly by myself during the final year of my apprenticeship

    A Baltic trader, for sale at the time, a few years back, thankfully out of my price range or my heart would have won out.

    A boat I can afford and it's got a bit of wood. Many happy hours spent just drifting about with the wind and tide

    A couple from Faversham boat festival, if you ever need tools, Old English Tools are based at Faversham quay, well worth a visit.
