  • The Boat
    it yourself type of boat but one that needs skilful craftsmanship in her construction She is built to stand up to any amount of rough treatment and to last for many years Boats that are now over 60 years old still race regularly at the annual championships and perform admirably As a consequence when boats do change hands which is not often the second hand price remains remarkably steady However thanks to the efforts of our boat builders and restorers over the last couple of decades there are now plenty newer and refurbished boats joining the fleet to complement the older hulls weathered from more half a century of hard racing The first boats are now more than sixty years old but with a little bit of TLC even a tired or neglected boat can be given a new lease of life For example R19 Gleam built in 1947 was found worn out and abandoned in 1978 and put back in commission for five pounds Years later and after many changes of ownership she was restored again by Rev Barribal and is now in regular use in the IOS fleet As far as we know the only pre war survivor
