Humber from the hedge!

Spotted an orange lump under a pine tree in the hedge of a garden locally where it had been for 4 yrs. Was offered the orange moss covered lump for 400, took a risk. After shoveling out the pine needles and a good scrub and ribshine this Humber 6 m appeared. Thanks to DM for selling me his old console and seat. It's beginning to come together. Very satisfying.
