Hi Carol
the wooden broads cruiser looks a beauty, think she may be one of Powles Star class, similar to Dessert and Missouri Star?
cheers

I agree that the first looks like a Bourne 35/40 - I initially though she was a 40, poss Easticks Grey Eagle, but I'm now thinking she might be JWBIII's sister ship - I'll PM DaveB

The second is certainly a Star, but I'm not sure she is Desert Star, the photo database photo shows one fewer rectangular window in the hull, suggesting she might be slightly newer.

I've e-mailed both vendors and I'll see what response I get

Craig,
she is desert star. I looked round her in thorpe about 3 months ago, as a possible replacement boat for my parents, there is only one other which still has a varnished hull - she lives in the wetshed at richardsons, the others are now all painted.

Hi Everyone, Found this forum while researching history on my boat Desert Star. She is currently having a major rebuild and not just the few planks it mentioned on Ebay. If you are interested i'm posting pics on www.desertstar.fusiveweb.co.uk.

Happy Boating everyone.
