"River class" ???? What is it with Appallingduck?

 

Back to blue again. But what have they done that makes it sound like a single? It never knocked like that.

I must admit the engine sounded very unlike a 3..

Or is this another boat

DANE was its commercial boat name, but only under Thomas Clayton (Oldbury) Ltd., and THE DANE was its pleasure boat name - one of the same boat, but not to be confused with the Mersey, Weaver and Ship Canal Carrying Company Ltd. wooden motor of the same name :captain:

That is Dane No.18. I was speaking to the owner a while back and he is having repairs done at AP Boatbuilding.

That's good news, parts of the cabin appear to be held together with gaffer tape and paint.

Matched Pair?  Only if the other boat is the “Swan” - which it isn’t. 😀

All  timber cabined  old boats go through this phase at some point. With steel it’s Isopon and paint and less visible.

When I bought my boat off the Thames in May 2018 CLARA was in use as a house boat at the river end of the Dukes Cut, Oxford. DANE has been up and down a few times since it was sold via Apollo Duck in the spring of 2018, so not too sure of the £15k valuation put on its Bolinder.

 

Here is DANE and CLARA at Marsworth :captain:

Yes , these are the same Owners pictured whom I referred to in my earlier post , I wasn't aware they had left the Cut until I saw both Clara and Dane advertised on Apollo Duck . If I remember correctly the advert stated they were being sold as a pair or separately . I struggle to remember the price being asked though £30k for both seems to stick in my memory . I suspect Dane was in good order at the time of sale , I dont know what became of Clara or if indeed they sold as a pair . Its a very interesting section History and Heritage which I enjoy immensely , I stick to the Jaguars however as they are a bit cheaper 😀

I am trying to resist buying another Jaguar at the moment, especially as my funds are supposed to be for completing my boat restoration (fully funded) and the purchase of a butty - the latter of which seems to have come to dead end until travel restrictions are lifted, by which time I fear the butty I really want will be sold :captain:

Hi Steve, yes, something very wrong with that engine. I have a short clip with sound from 2008, but the sound has been corrupted somehow. Anyway, a nice tak-at-a-tak-at-a - and no 'orrible clonk. Maybe someone's messed with the injector pump setting. The danger is what damage it has or is doing.

Certainly some high prices still being asked despite this predicted Post Covid Recession ( Both Jaguars and Boats ) I suspect sellers will eventually have to face some reality though hopefully not too harsh .

Originally butty bath, then Severn motor number 7, then into Claytons and called dane.

Clara sold a few months back and was last seen heading down the South Oxford.

dane as far as I know sold not long after and was to a guy in Loughborough way, I last saw it at Foxton both afloat and sunk.

 

It wasn't till Malcolms Facebook page when he said everything is for sale including dane (Clayton dane) seen in the background of the pic.

 

Hence my asking. I'm going to be shot but I'm going to have to message Malcolm. If there is a chance I can get her back I will. But towy would have to go as 2 wooden boats is not a good idea.

The pictures were taken in 1961 "The Battle of Stourbridge"

 

Why was a Forecabin added to the boat and when

Forecabin was added by dad for me and my brother its based on Giffords sizes and design. As we didnt have a butty we needed extra space

 

Think was late 80s pos 89 as other work was done. But could be very early 90s

The location is about 100yards past Chubbs bridge towards Stourbridge, there was always a scour there as the road drains emptied into the canal at that point. Dane was owned at that time by the Parsons brothers, I thinks its Richard on the helm, Dane made the journey through the Stourbridge Canal a couple of times in the early 60's before its restoration, taking up to 2 days to do about 5 miles, I was sometimes put on the back being the lightest person to manipulate the controls whilst everyone else pulled on ropes to get it over the scours, my first experiance steering a 70 footer, At 9/10 years old some great memories.
