Mayflower (in the 80s) had a water cooled Lister (CE2?) from a crane, yes it had a radiator.

Martin Fuller I believe, I was also told the propeller was from a stirrer on a brewery vat.

Isn't that the original one?   Wooden,  formerly bolinder pup powered. Or is that a copy of the original one, and the other one is a copy of that..

That one doesn't look very wooden, does it?

I bet these are "fun"to boat in, being shprt, narrow and with a tall cabin, (and the hull quite  probably nearly all front and rear swim).

Our "Sickle" rolls a bit, but I bet it is nothing compared to one of these!

The original one is surprisingly stable.

 

We took it from somewhere around Beeston down to Venetian Marina to get it craned out and it didn't move around much, although we did accidentally spin it at a lock due to the bywash! It didn't roll noticeably at all. The only problem we had was a bit of a leak in the counter so it took on water whilst underway, and the bilge pump packed up so a lot of time was spent baling with a small saucepan, hence I can't comment much on the bit down the Middlewich branch as I was otherwise occupied!

 

Oates rolls a whole lot more.

Looks nice. Picture below in between the two from Hudds Lad- September 2021 with grey undercoat when Pompey Chimes behind  was moored up, Pompey Chimes passed us this July heading towards Fazeley or Fradley and as well as Pompey Chimes she has several other Portsmouth FC paint themes  and sported a Portsmouth FC flag on her tiller. I was expecting a Pompey Chime chant  taped music to come blasting out from her as well, very disappointed though maybe relieved at the same time.  😁

I’d have added that one in the middle, but the app i was using to stack the pics into one wanted a “pro” subscription to do three or more pics, and i’m tighter than a ducks butt :D

Hudds Lad suggests you may have Yorkshire blood somewhere, or be a Hudson owner in which case you could cough up 🤣🤣

Found the video of this one, she has changed  since May/June  2021 with a full repaint, there a fair change at the bow too. The owner does a nice internal walkthrough. The engine makes a longer appearance on the Severn and Avon
