I am looking for information on a boat 'called T4' which was converted into a ferry/workboat at thorncroft yard at hampton court. 45' double diagonal on oak. possible MTB boat hull 103 or R104. can you shed light on the matter or source photos, or archive links
cheers

Hi Boat T4,

Sorry have nothing to offer in terms of info, but hopefully you have come to the right place, from your strap line, did your vessel come from e-bay?!, best of luck with her,

 She was bought from ebay 2 or 3 years ago. with no super structure and rotten decks. I used old army bedford lorry tarps to put over a canvas roof, and have been trying to repaint her hull, lots of filler and sanding and corking. cost me 52. Situated Kennet & Avon Canal Wiltshire.

cheers ant

was owned by the owner of Mr Toots which is now up for sale on this site, he salvaged her and took out the engine.

As an afterthought I have a feeling she might be a former Dartmouth Naval College training boat.
