    Jam Ole Run 1995 - the first one!

    Hey Thanks for this. It was wonderful to see the canal without quite as many boats! Great dialogue and really nice to see..

    When I bought Archimedes it was composite. At that time I removed the SR3 from the back cabin and put in the HR2 back into the original engine room. My dad put the extension cabin on to make it easier for living on. When I sold the boat to Albert he ran it for a while with the wooden bottoms but he did replace the bottom with steel I think in the early 90's Was a lovely boat to boat with and went like a rocket with the wooden bottoms in.... I am pretty sure Ara is steel bottomed.

    Still the best modern carrying boat I have ever seen. I think this was built alongside Otley hence the proportions are so good.

    I think Graeme at Stockton Dry Dock re-bottomed and re-footed Otley a wile ago now. He did say they only did the hold and not under the back cabin and engine room. I think he is much partial to Large Northwich's even though I keep getting him to work on josher's!!

    Willow Wren Original Hire Boats

    Bittern was indeed ex FMC Lion. It caught fire when still working as a hire/camper for Willow Wren and then was sold to Alan (New Zealander) who took it to Aylesbury after purchasing it from Willow Wren.
