that's a fairly big ask, even for a besotted enthusiast

Not really 25-35k on new bottoms, then you have chines if it needs it, then there is the cabin and engine room work, then you got all Sheering if it any good and replace. That before you've even touched the rest of the hull,

It will also depend on how much weight you put in her as to how high up the current planks become an issue, top 2-3 planks all round if not used for much loading you can prob get away with being a bit worse than others, bottom 3 including chine at back and 2 from middle including chine are the ones in the water. Other planks depending where they are can be done in the water as you have near 0 risk to the boat, becomes more a problem when you need to steam and bend as the boat will move while you trying to bend the planks.

Perhaps because it's ugly and lacks a "proper" engine?

Canaline 52hp engine is as "proper" as any engine installed in a River Class butty ........ indeed any butty if it comes to that.

I recall John Edwards moving off Marcellus to live on Cam.

It's still on the Duck.

Advert posted yesterday, so I’d say it is now back on the market - pity the photos don’t do it justice (Haven’t worked out how to copy a link on this iPad thing, but it’s on the duck)

I'm not sure what this wacky image brings to the sale of the boat, with uncle fester steering and granny getting stoned out front!
