This boat was owned by someone who moored near me. Apparently it was all he could afford to live on after an expensive divorce. He has since managed to buy another boat, hence this one going down river to be scrapped.   Smile

I read somewhere that
drinking was
bad for you, so I have
given up Reading.

Nope. At least, I didn't see any boats in Google satellite view... But about 30 years ago my brother-in-law bought a boat that wasn't in much worse condition, and with the aid of his younger brother 'as ballast' he actually motored it from some mudflat in Essex right round to the Hamble River, where he found a yard willing to rent him space cheaply. After about 3 years he gave up, and bought a raw fibreglass sailint boat hull which he did keep in his garden for three years before he launched it...

Not a bad effort for someone who'd never been on a boat before, who was a logic designer/programmer but came from a Dorset family of thatchers.
