    Ah yes now I remember with all that done was easy to think the swims were done
  2. Historic Boats for sale online

    I thought the swims had been done as in fully replaced I’m sure I remember seeing photos of this along with counter

    Tho she ended up having a whole counter too as all shot. As to original over new yes there are some odd ideas but if the knees are taken out instead of cut etc then why not quite a few boats with a lot of new albeit riveted.

    Mercury was built for midland and coast with a forecabin by Yarwoods and is not a station boat hence the bow being more josher like. She did then get taken over by FMC I believe 1922 but could be a year or two out

    The bow was cut off by BWB for some reason or other several theory’s I believe one puts England at Harcastle tunnel as some sort of bridge/staging but I’m not getting into that one. So a new bow was needed so a station boat bow was used I quite like it.

    When I had ling I kept the steel chequerplate over the gunwhale angles and had steel gunwhales fitted over by this method she does not really need the chains but had them in anyway and could still bring her in an inch.

    Seems quiet to me
  9. Fore Cabins on restored boats - too high?

    Yes that's an fmc style horse boat bow cabin the stove would be on a metal shelf to the side of the bed ole to the starboard side as would be in the back cabin. With the bed flap down the whole area becomes of the cabin becomes a bed. I have the book these drawings came from when I get chance will see if they have a Claytons cabin, if memory serves in does not but we will see.

    Right sickle is 40 ish foot water bulrush was 37 ish so only 3 foot less sickle however has a totally new counter and sides for the complete length of the swims plus the entire plate infront (gunwale to chine) is new on port side and if memory serves starboard as well. Maybe I should of put it as "there is more original boat in hare than sickle.

    Alan one shouldn't throw stones in a glass house as there is less "new" boat in hare than sickle

    Go see Paul Barber at Sheet Stores Basin on the Erewash if he and the team can't do it it can't be done

    Effingham is expensive considering it needs more work than Ling did when I sold her and is only a few thousand cheaper as advertised.
