All being well it should raise a fair sum.

Just recently sold one, admittedly found at a bargain price and made 750 for the sea cadets - mostly a clean and tidy up, plus replacing seat & cover, and minor tube repairs/upgrade.

Current one is a bit more of a challenge, just replaced the 'ply' in the transom & lots more to do! Hopefully the next (this one) will be like the first one - simple and with lots of 'added value'!

Picked up the boat yesterday (another story!), and took it with DavyBuoy round to Ed (RiffRaff) at Dartmouth - yes it is one of his previous re-tube jobs and to confirm they are hypalon tubes. All good so far!

Generally it's quite a clean boat and you could just add an engine and be off out on the water.

We're going to do a bit of a little tidying/tlc first and then we'll ad the engine which will probably be a tohatsu 40.

As we picked the boat up we realised that whilst the basic trailer is fine the bearings, rollers, jockey wheel and anything else attached to it was rust - sounded like towing an angle grinder. So we had a trip to CM Trailers in South Brent just off the A38 - many thanks to them (sorry forgotten his name) for sorting out the bearings at short notice.

So watch this space.....
