    where will  the boat be moved to for the restoration alan
    Were keeping her where she is at the moment close to home and all that.  Theres lots to do engine needs to be fire up and checked, rudder currently seized needs taken off and freed.  Main thing at present is the starter isn't working so if anyones got a spare Perkins 6.354 24v starter kicking around that would be useful.  Good point is she doesn't take on any water at all very tight, might be the sitting in mud that helps that though.

    Plans a lot will be glad of is to lower the wheel house roof as at 6ft8 I've still got 8in of head room in the wheelhouse so the roofs rotten anyway so we'll lower that when we replace it, that should get the proportions right.

    Great News. Fished along side her in Firth of Forth. Look forward to see her restored. All the Best.
