Your insurance should pay for the lift and hopefully put right everything thats been spoiled.

That's not good, you have my sympathies.

Maffett's certainly know what they're doing, but they aren't cheap. If you're planning to involve your insurance company, please be aware that cover for 'wreck removal' is just that, and it will be removed in the easiest (i.e. cheapest) way possible, with probably no consideration of it's future. I know this may not be an issue if you were planning to sell anyway, but it might still be important to you.

Getting down to business, it would be useful to know a bit more about the boat:

Sail or power, age, condition?

Likely cause of the sinking?

How long has she been sunk?

How deep down is she?

Inboard, outboard, or engineless?

How much (if any) fuel or other pollutants are on board?

I'm perfectly happy to head over and take a look, and if she's within my capabilities, I'd be willing to attempt salvage ASAP. If you'd like me to take a look, PM me your contact details and I'll head over as soon as it's light tomorrow.

Terrible news for any owner. But even worse when you'd decided to sell, all your plans thrown into complete limbo. You have my deepest sympathy.

Regards, Ray.

If it's neither here, nor there, then where is it?

hi all.
  she is a wooden 30ft by 10ft mid cockpit cruiser, called Caravelle 3. she is sunk opposite the beauchamp arms in around 6-8ft of water. there is only about 4 gallons of fuel aboard and no water in the tanks? at least there wasn't last weekend. I can only think that she has sprung a plank banging against the side, during the big winds Wednesday, as she was that water tight, we never had more than two inches in the bilge dead centre.
  due to the fact that she never took in water after I recaulked and planked the hull, we only have 3rd party insurance, which obviously doesn't cover us at all.
stupid I know, but we were going to sell her for something smaller and plastic. now, I don't know what to do. she was my bolt hole when the 'depression' got too much. now just feeling sick and worried.
thanks for the sympathy, much appreciated.

One of the above?

Suspect that she can be got up quickly enough but I also suspect that she will need to be taken to the nearest yard A.S.A.P. and slipped, presuming that she has sprung a plank.

Would hate to be in this position, there can be so much  water damage, damage that is expensive to fix.

I really do feel for the owner.

Oh dear, things go from bad to awful. No insurance cover. A salutary reminder that you never can predict exactly what the future may bring. Let's hope there is a light at the end of this dark tunnel for you. If there is anyone who can help, there will be someone on here, I'm sure. Keep your head up.

Regards, Ray.

Sorry to hear of your problem - must be an awful shock to discover something like that.

The location is opposite the Beachamp Arms?

If my memory serves me, the bank there is reeds only, no key heading? and access by road would be very difficult?

Have you contacted Teadeamon?

It seems to me that he has made you an excellent offer of help and if it is beyond his capability's at least you would have the benefit of his expert advice.

Good luck hope it works out for you in the end.

regards, Yorkie

I thought the same. Unless it isnt directly opposite but further up river by the entrance to Rockland Broad, that is the only bit of quayheading I can think of on the North side of the river between Cantley and Reedham.

There is access over the marshes to the bank opposite Beachamp Arms but I have been down there.

Lets hope you manage to get it up and salvage it.

Not sure what I can do, but if there is anything give me a shout.

Gary.
