The boat has been in the family for over 50 years and now my father is retiring after being a fisherman, like his father before him for 50 years. A reluctant sale but dad can't look after her any more. It need to go to someone who can offer her the TLC she needs. The photographs show last time she was out of the water to give you an indication of shape and size. She needs lifting again and the wind and waterline need tending to. There are several shots of her fishing but there is no licence now as she was decommissioned a number of years ago.
It would make a fine restoration project for the right enthusiastic people. Call if you would like to come and view her. The engine is in excellent condition. Deck and gunnels need attention.

DO NOT SEND MONEY TO SELLERS YOU CANNOT VERIFY AS GENUINE.  If possible, travel to view the boat or equipment yourself and only buy once you are happy with it.
