    This boat was onFAFB last year I think? Nice to see a sensitive restoration . I always think the conversions don't look right with all the fishing gear stripped off, kinda hauf dressed!. And some of these new wheelhooses , caravans,portacabins conservatories or whatever ....well! Looks a good job whoever was responsible!!
    Re last comment : :idiot2:it was another boat on the Isle of Man I think that was for sale ;)
