Wooden hull

This hull was built by Rick Whitten about 15 years ago. He restored furniture as a hobby and decided to build himself a Rib. It was a work of art and we built and fitted the tubes for him. He used to live in Cornwall but have not seen him for a few years.

Thanks for the comments

Hi Chris we have had a few conversions about this boat over the last 2 years and i am toying with the idea of parting with her or to spend the cash get her finished ,I have a habit of getting unusual boats you tubed my other boat a small cabin rib the guy told you it was a 5.4 sr but its not (large gray tubes with two black rubbing strakes)

I would love to finish the boat but time is hard to come by and it seems such a waste just sat on the trailer.
