A Dream or vision, maybe both.
My name is Barry
I have restored several old boats of different makes and models just for enjoyment.
I would love to find a large boat one that I could live on for several days / weeks at a time.
I would like an old diesel engine and if sail also then would have to have weights and very low draft.
I have never sailed but would like to.
An old fishing trawler conversion would be just fine as long as it is wood, I am not too interested in fiberglass but would consider it again as always I am not real picky.
I found the perfect one a few years back, she was a small sailboat with a single cylinder engine and all brass with a great history….. but due to my Father's health at the time I let her sail away with a very heavy heart.
If anyone knows of something that I might be able to move please feel free to contact me.
I will promise to take care of her and when an if I cannot I will pass her on to someone of like mind.
While the original system
worked quite well as a one-off post, it didn’t allow for updating or
posting new photographs etc.
That is why I have
introduced the new Your Pages.
This is new ‘Community’
platform is for 2018.
It is designed to put you
in control of your content, make it easier to for you to tell us about
your Wooden Boat, upload photos etc. and most of all post updates as
and when you wish to.
There is also a forum where
you can ask any questions you may have about Wooden Boats and join in
So, please come on
over and join our community of likeminded Wooden Boaters.
