Here's a slice of history, nothing to do with me, but rare indeed. On eBay!

What a shame, it would make a good project for Nugent though

Walked past it today, I thought is was more something Biffer would want to take on. Guess it would depend on the engines and drive condition.
Anyone know what is is?

RIB-Teccie - thanks for posting that - I had wondered what happend to her as up until about a year ago she was laid up in my local boatyard. She had been sat there untouched for at least 10 years and was/is in a poor state of repair. Definitely more than a months work for someone with moderate DIY skills as the ad suggests and certainly needs an owner with deep pockets. Like those early P36's, she too has a cold moulded mahogany hull.

Thanks for the info and photos of 'Big Dinghy' - I'm hoping to get in contact at somepoint today so will keep you posted as to how I get on.

Please do keep the suggestions coming.

Thanks to all those who responded to my original thread. The outcome was that I did manage to find a Pacific 36 RIB and this is now undergoing a refit in readiness for it's new life.

What I hadn't anticipated was the need for a second boat of this nature! Therefore, if anybody knows of another P36 that is/could be for sale, then I'd be very interested to hear from them.

Thanks in advance.
