The last I heard it was still there. It is still being advertised. There was a report lying around fo it somewhere but I can't find it.

I am led to believe that it's not quite firewood yet. The keel is in place and whole, in general her planking is sound with the worse damaged already replaced some years ago. There is more replanking needed and the superstructure around the wheelhouse and aft of it is in very poor state. Some of the framing timbers need replacing and then a total interior fit out.

Commercially it is not viable, it always surprises me how little these boats are worth in good shape. A decent one will cost you £30-35k, the suggested repair bill on this one is double that.

Regards

Paul

I understand it's in Somerset.

What a Broom is doing in this state in Somerset has kept my small level of intelligence busy for quite some time.

Maybe we could have it shipped to Ranworth Island for June 24th next. I'm sure 750 members could knock it into shape in a couple of hours.

Robin W as project consultant and Bill M as foreman - we're home and dry!

Well, perhaps dry was an unfortunate choice of words.

Not sure I would want that job when I saw her she was well and truely 'Hogged' the keel might be alright but the sole had gone. She really would need to be spilt down the middle and then reassembled.  Frown

No worries Bill, there's a shop in town here that advertises new soles - a fiver a pair. All we have to do is find another boat in similar state and we can have 'em both done!
