More great news
I have been in conversations with a private boat collector who would like to remain anonymous.
He has very generously offered to donate one of his ribs to our Macmillan Cancer Support fundraising cause. This rib is a gift to us to raise enough money to push us over the £10,000 threshold.
I haven't seen the rib yet but the great news is that it's a Military Avon Searider SR5.4, one of the later builds with a mk2 fisheries console and the low a frame with the folding nav light
Apparently I have a choice of two and I'm hoping to see some pics later this week. There's no trailer or engine however both hulls are not antifouled.
The idea is that we do a Ribnet restoration and then auction it for our charity to the highest bidder.
This is a continuation from our Round the Isle of Wight for Macmillan and has nothing to do with my new Osprey venture.
Everyone is welcome to help out with this and I hope you all get involved in one way or another
