Hi John

Thanks for the superb photos, the rest of us are here;

But I have to say it makes more sense right here.

Perhaps a new topic, Pioneer? Can everything so far be moved?

Tarleton boatyard have given the owner of 2552 my e-mail address, so hopefully I may get some more info as to whats happening with the boat and maybe some past history,

Maybe this is the wrong forum for this but bear with me I'm new!

The HSL's had Napier Sea Lion engines, in the Vietnam war the Norwegian supplied 'Nasty' class boats had Napier Deltic engines!

Can anyone help me out with this boat? I'm trying to find a good price and a fair home for it, perhaps a maritime museum with the ability to restore it. Are there agents for this kind of work, or could someone perhaps suggest a next point of contact with an interest in this kind of sale?

that should be a fair price and a good home. I'm helping the owner out, but if that kind of nonsense typing keeps up then I'll be no use at all.

Hi there,
 
Just seen your post, well, sorry to say perhaps not a lot of options, someone else might take her on, depends on condition, location and price, given climate today I am afraid we have seen a number of craft that perhaps would have been nice to save at least, go to the wall.

At risk of sounding like a total mercenary. Price wanted? Clear of fees & full ownership if taken on ect? work needed to stabilise? current storage costs? Ect ect...
The h&d are nowhere near as pretty as the whalebacks but they are better seaboats by far. Ok this will prob cost me 100k in the endgame but don't have the initial 50k outlay for the s32 and 145 for her history would be a fools errand to one man.
Know what i'll be taking on after a mk1 eyeball and a bit of prodding with a penknife. Of course if lanroc, pelican or robrina are a clearout price and saveable with optimism then all bets are off. Until then i'm a decent joiner and interested!
A boat is a hole in the water surrounded by wood, into which one throws money

I'm the new owner of HSL 2552 and I'm planning on restoring her over the coming years (10-15). I was wondering if anyone had the original builders plans or know where I could get them from?

Cheers
