Yes we did buy this boat never started work on her but!!! we did make a nice profit on her she had a very nice diesel engine under that cover

This Lady came with the first boat both were on walney island barrow in Furness free mooring if you could call it that 800 yards up the beach you could sail her once a month if you were lucky

Then came our first sailing experience with the arrival of Seal song drop keel she had a outboard engine well to tell the truth she had about 5 before we got a decent working one work work money money and more work you were lucky to get out of Conwy before she broke down but sailed like a dream and if you hit a sand bank and believe me we hit lots and lots you just wind the keel up and off you go to the next sand bank lol

Then came dalwitch what a beautiful yacht inboard diesel Yanmar fin keel handled like a dream but still did not like the sand banks, think we are going to have to learn to sail and learn more about the sea and keep an eye on the depth gauge if we had one and maybe buy some charts this tom-toms not very good lol
