Most of the moulds are now with Madera Ribs.

Tubes were made by Henshaws from hypalon, they will still have all the patterns.

The design might have changed by 2001 but late '90s Cromptons had the same hull design as the early Ballistics, quick, with lots of lift but not the most comfortable.

Shaun....is this her?.... If so, she was known as 'Teal'..... we did a large tranche of Bathymetric survey for Geomatics (Env Agency) around the UK last year, using our boats in Wales, one of the EA's local boats in the North West and 'Teal' on the East Coast (mainly out of Humber Cruising Assoc)....travelling around a fair bit in the process....
did a lot of hours on her....any questions, just ask

Hi Dan
Yes same boat. Purchased her for 6k plus the tax, sadly the electronics were removed. But did come with a stainless steel trailor!.
The weather shield around the cockpit had to go though. A few dinks in the hull Nothing major, gave her i topside refit and had to reprop. Otherwise fantastic boat.
using her out of plymouth.
Have you any idea of fuel tank size. Ime estimating 300 to 350lt

Hi there,
I have the same hull operating with a passenger license here in Ireland.I repowered last year with a single F150
Mine has an underdeck tank but I have never used it as I bought the boat with SS tanks under the jockeys. My next project will be to lift the deck and look at replacing the tank but for now the on deck tanks are fine.
The hulls are great in a seaway and carry weight well (obviously I am talking about passengers as opposed to anything illegal
We have seating for 8 on jockeys plus a bench in front of the console.
if you have any questions please feel free to get in touch
