There doesn't appear to be any 30 foot steel boat registered under the name 'cloud 9'

 

Nearest would appear to be a 40 footer.

 

Cloud 9 Built by Fenmatch Ltd - Length : 12.19 metres ( 40 feet ) - Beam : 2.07 metres ( 6 feet 9 inches ) - Draft : 0.61 metres ( 2 feet ). Metal hull N/A power of 20 HP. Registered with Canal & River Trust number 68143 as a Powered Motor Boat.  ( Last updated on Wednesday 22nd May 2013 )

I don't think Bridgewater registrations are in the public domain.

It's a pretty little boat (I like the dickey seat)

No, it's bigger than that, you could sit your whole bum on it.

I assume you mean the box with the red top; would this not be for the batteries?

Can’t the previous owner remember where he had her lifted out?  If he can then ask the guys involved.

The boat Joe was owned by a guy named Ron who was a fender maker and was based at the BMBC (Bridgewater Motor Boat Club) in Runcorn.

 

Unfortunately after Ron passed away the boat passed to a family member who started to commence a refit and for one reason or another never finished. The boat was located under the Waterloo Bridge (known locally as Top Locks) for a couple of years, looking rather abandoned and sorry for itself, covered in pigeon muck and other assorted gunge.

 

By this point the boat was offered for sale at a very high price being quite clearly a project, but eventually did sell and was lifted from the water and relocated elsewhere by road.

 

In the "glory" days, Ron practically lived on the boat, or at least used it extensively and was usually found up and down the Bridgewater of a weekend etc.

 

To my knowledge since Ron's passing to the point of Sale it wasn't docked at all, and although not an originally thick hull, was for from being in good condition. It will probably need plating work sooner rather than later.

Liam thank you so much for all this info , i dont suppose there are any pictures of her anywhere , and yes i had to have a complete new hull fitted 2 years ago but she is a supper little boat .

I've been racking my brain to think of the previous owners name, and it has finally come to me. Ron Long.

 

I have no pictures of the boat unfortunately, I've had a quick Google online and nothing relevant is showing up.

 

Just out of interest, do you have a recent picture of the boat? It would be nice to see it again.
