Hello

Nearly purchased Zeta a couple of years, wouldn't mind another look if anyone has any information regarding the vendor or agent selling her? Where is she located at present?

Any information appreciated.

Regards

'Zeta' is currently at Bursledon although the boatyard is still not sure that they are able to sell to recover costs so that its not at all certain she is available. She sadly sank last week due to excessive rainfall but she was refloated almost immediately and has now had her engines removed for flushing and her starters and alternators have been removed for reconditioning.

Thank you for the update on Zeta. Do you know if the owners are in contact with the boatyard? I'm very keen to speak to them - or the boatyard, if possible as I would like to save her from further damage. Any help in moving things forward appreciated because it would be a shame to see her go to ruin.

As far as I know the boatyard is in contact with the owners, who are keen to keep her. there are also other people who are very interested in preventing her demise. Regards David.

Forgot to tell you all, the concensus amongst the historians is that she is an ex Derby Winners Class minus her hull belts, and she could be ex Coronach. This is all unconfirmed but quite likely.

Hi Christian,

She does look very very like a Derby winners class hull.  There was one small thing, when looking at the diagonal planking on this boat it is laid  'pointing' ( yes, yes, very technical I know)  forward yet, on a photo of hyperion, it is laid pointing/leaning aft.

I guess it is possible that yards had build differences.

Regards

Don

Balloch boat:
I understand to be a BPBCo boat.
Construction is BPBCo. style as correctly spotted above.
I do not have my records where I am at the moment, but my wife is close and has restored several BPBCo so she knows waht she is looking at. Hull was sound a few years ago, but has not been out for several years.
Regards
Andy

Balloch boat:

I have followed the discussion with interest as the hull looked familiar but 'not quite right'. The descriptions tick some Derby Winner boxes, 48ft is one and the third propshaft position is another. It is the name thought that really clicked for me, 'TRICO'. This is not a Derby Winner name but 'TRIGO' is and the transformation could occur for a number of reasons such as a mis-copy from faded paint, a 'typo' or just a similar but not identical name.

TRIGO is a Groves and Guttrige build of 1944, last recorded as 'TRIGO of RHU' in 1965. (via Philip Simons).

The lie of the planks is, I think, a difference between J.S. White and G&G though I need to check more photo's to be sure. The sectioned drawing I have of a G&G Derby Winner definitely shows the 'inner leaf' with the tops to the stern so one may conclude that the 'outer leaf' points forward at the top.

I think I saw in another thread that David Earle-Payne has drawings for both builders so the definitive answer on this may be close to hand.

Can you send a copy of your section plan. I can compare it to the my records and let you know.

What are your thoughts for possibly using this boat?
Are you familiar with the construction and issues to be considered for a successful conversion. It will depend on how and where you want to use the vessel.

Best regards
