Thanks for putting up the photo.  She  looks like a ST to me.
If you want to email me any photos (if they are too large for the forum, please send to don@rania.co.uk)

Is she abandoned? From the photo, it looks like new 'shuttering' ply on the decks.

Thanks again,

Don

Jeez , that's the first time someones been online at the same time as me , however , the pics I have are all of the stern (he didn't fancy wading in and who could blame him ) , she's on West Mersea as said , but she is in pretty bad state . If you are interested I can send details . Apparently she has been deserted and moved from dry dock to mud berth and left there . A jet wash would clean her up lots but I have no idea what the state of the woodwork is.

Let me know if you want more , I have a contact on a different forum that did all the leg work and saved me the travel , which as you can guess is V appreciated .

Thanks. Is there anyone 'official' (ie 'they') that would know who the owner is?  I supppose the dry dock owners would be the ones who should know who has title.

I'll inform Bobster about this boat just in case he is interested.

Regards & Thanks

She is the 'Nana Loa' and is on the foreshore at West Mersea just before West Mersea Yacht Club. She is in a bit of a sorry state at the moment, but apparently she does just about float! She is ex RAF and apparently was involved in the D-Day landings. Her current owners have disappeared, and the yard owner is looking to sell her to recoup some of his costs and clear space on his area of foreshore!

Hope this helps Don , and let me know if you need more

Hi Dave,

Do you know the Yard Name. I could give them a call.
Thanks

I don't have the yard name because I was intending to go and look her over without calling , but I'm sure the West Mersea Yacht Club will know , and this time of year they're probably busy so you have more chance of an answer .

As for the port side , give me a few minutes to locate and download and I'll put them on here

Dave

Hi Dave,

Consensus it that I am whong and that she IS a 63' ASR whaleback.
I tend to agree now.

Port side aft looks badly damaged where she was lifted.


Regards

Don
