Hi Clive,
 
Many thanks for your response, the new projects look very exciting and finding the old vessel also good, quite understand re 32 but hope things will pick up again soon and we shall see her out and about, thanks again

Hi John,
Yes things are a bit quiet, I have been concentrating on other things and the cash situation is not as it was! , I have put '32 on the back burner for a while although the plan is still to get her hull done.
 
Here is some of what has been distracting me, they are both on another forum..
obviously there is plenty of 'thread drift' on forums so please bear with itSmile
 
this is a former hire cruiser built by my Dad which I wanted an example of I found this one and have been getting her restored at the boatyard.
 
this next project is an exciting one, at the moment it is at the plug stage of the hull of a river cruiser,  we last built a hull in the late 70s, this is a massive investment and we are lucky to have these skills to hand as it is a specialised craft.
 
I have thought about selling her if there was someone else willing to take her on but have decided to wait until I get the time and free resources to deal with her, however if someone wanted her then they can always find me.

Cheers John,

Glad you like it, there should be a bit more to come from Peter (thankyou Peter).

I am still on the lookout for relevant info to put on there. If anyone has more info or has spotted mistakes in what I have put up please let me know.

Hi Clive,

 

Just been onto the site for 32, great stuff, interesting bit of her history from P Wallis, great to follow a dream like that, bit hairy on arrival, ie searching for loose change! but sounds great. Pictures are good, thousand words etc.

From the photo's I have seen of Newson's work S32 could not be in better hands, they must be one of the few yards around that can still handle such a large wooden boat, most of the wooden boatbuilders/repairers seem to stop at speedboat/slipper launch size from what I have seen in their advertisements.

Hi Phil,

 cheers. It is a lot of boat and not many of us are crazy enough to do it, but it does feel good that what we are doing is interesting if not too relaxing!
