“Iona” is a one off 21ft clinker cabin cruiser built in 1970
Well it is all done and she is now afloat well at least when the tide is in.
She is finished (that is the most ridicules statement I have ever made) if you know anything about boats.
They are never finished, I guess you might say in a ready to use condition.
The crane was supposed to come on Tuesday but they had to cancel due to the previous job going on to long so they turned up at 7pm Wednesday.
She went in about 7.45pm at this stage panic set in but to my surprise she did not take as much water as I thought she might being that she was out of the water for two years had some new planks in the bottom and been pulled about.
So I was over the moon.
I even arranged to leave her on a quay wall for a couple of tides just in case but that was not needed.
So I am taking her out to her mooring this evening.
Enjoy the photo's

Return to Your Wooden Boat Projects...
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.
