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.
I am perfectly aware that the majority of Wooden Boat aficionados are sensible folk. However, I need to point out that I am an amateur wooden boat enthusiast simply writing in order to try to help other amateur wooden boat enthusiasts. And while I take every care to ensure that the information in DIY Wood Boat.com is correct, anyone acting on the information on this website does so at their own risk.
