  1. I believe this to be heron or what was listed as such in the bw auctions some years ago as looks like Paul Barbers work to stern and cabin plus bow.
  2. What is now the bow is what waterways put on as a butty stern based on the river class back end? The bow was later cut off and squared off you can see the bow last parts of the guards and in the photos you can see the turn in of the bow plates. You can also see the stern sideways t stud has been retained for the bow
  3. It is indeed Ex FMC Dace the bow being what was the “new” butty stern fitted by BW
  4. Interesting as 743 listing in the new book (just counted ) however rebuilds of steamers and when the were converted to motors are listed as separate lines
  5. Ah now you remind me of an issue I had a few years back. Being told to go research when said person held only copy of research I was looking at lol. Tho my efforts didn’t go to waste and spotted many errors in materials put out including drawings for the single motors that turned out to be for the big engine early northwichs. But yes I knew that as the new FMC book has some but I gather not all the listings as it tends to stick to the long distant boats and not those used on the bun as day boats
  6. You of course have a point however I was using what has become a widely used term to identify which boat in the easiest way possible. You of course have a point however I was using what has become a widely used term to identify which boat in the easiest way possible.
  7. Getting it wrong since 1975...? its abit like people saying it’s been 100 years since World War One ended, sorry don’t they mean The Great War.
  8. Is she for sale? The ex butty not the hill class motor I take it https://m.apolloduck.com/boat.phtml?id=579089 anyone said about Uranus?
  9. Yes however sentinels was more pinched abit like Alison’s but still not Spurr. The thing that’s gets me is the Elums all being reverse shark fins. I don’t know for a fact but was told by them was built for a Brewing company as a beer boat not sure if this was transport or selling. However have seen photos of Sentinal with just the back cabin.
  10. However this isn’t a Spurr definitely a Duvall http://newandusedboat.co.uk/used-boats-for-sale/740 I do wonder if there was a connection between the 2
  11. I can see why people might think she’s a Duvall but definitely not his.
  12. Do you have any photos as I have seen Brian Duvall boats being wrongly sold as spur marine. Once you have spent all your life on and looking at them you kind of know them lol. That said Allison isn’t a name that I remember tho they do get re named
  13. Sentinel was one of 10 built by Brian Duvall somewhere on the BCN using a brake press. If my late farthers boat is anything to go by some odd sheet sizes. The bows were based on a old boat Brian Duvall owned and I believe converted and lived on. This being Emerald, the early boats had more wood than the later I.E a mix between bottoms gunwhales and cabins.
  14. I recommend Fender Phil he’s on facebookFacebook
