Thats been on ebay a few times now - wont sell.

Done up would make a lovely boat. I love those my self. A totally shagged one went for less than a tenner not so long ago on the condition it was moved within three or so days. If only I had a lorry to hand!!

Would make a really nice winter project

Probably as I would love something similar. There was a great series in Boat Owner years ago about a bloke who travelled the world in an old Watson lifeboat. Did the North West Passage the lot.

Personally I am saving up for this

I quite like it too. I'd prefer this though...

I wouldn't own a wooden boat though. Big repair bills.

Definitely but diesels instead of Merlins - yuch!!!

When I was a kid my father bought an old RAF rescue launch that had sunk - was in our garden for years while he restored it - the merlins/packards were scrap so he put in a pair of diesels. We never got to see it finished as we were slung out of the country.

Nah it wasn't Wales - some Arab country where the people were great but their government wasn't - bit like Britain under Tony Blair.......

Would you guys please stop posting pics. of those wonderful old boats; it really makes me envious. I would give my left nut for one. I used to work on William Street, Northam, Southampton and each lunchtime walk down to Campers ( now Shamrock Quay) and watch Shamrock V being rebuilt. Closest I every got was crewing on my friends C&N 39, in the 80's, which won the 1961 Round the Island. Oh, happy days.
