    suffering badly from fresh water rain damage Hood ends had all but let go and had I not rescued her the deck would have soon fallen in leaving only outspread frames and homes for the eels I was soon to discover that the local council was planning to chain drag the entire quay as the surrounding area was to be developed I owe so much to so many for the assistance and enthusiasm from all concerned Peter and Claire Thomas Having never even met me before extended exceptional hospitality over several weekends with accommodation excellent food and conversation Peter arrived at the boat Saturday morning with coffee and extra buckets and spades and worked all day in the pouring rain Claire laughed at the exhausted muddy loonies as we arrived late in the evening to clean up thaw out and refuel Over that weekend we bucketed the mud from within and refloated her for barely long enough to get lifting strops around her A local crane and haulage co lifted her onto a low loader and one week later delivered her to the south coast Its a strange thing Success is the child of audacity Four weekends travelling 250 miles each way to throw mud about legal hassle to establish that she was abandoned Local council red tape she had been slowly sinking in council berth on the Town Quay for 12 years finding and paying crane lorries police escorts Salvage pumps Can you imagine the droves of helpful local experts offering all types of advice Good advice bad advice JOKE advice Stupid advice Pessimistic advice It will never work Advice All of it Painfully time consuming advice A lot of it appreciated but none really needed The physical effort has left me with aces and pains that continue to

    a new face and steel shoe on the keel and new keelson I have had little success tracing any further history and photos have totaly eluded me HELP I shall endevour to update every two weeks and appologise for the lack of new info and pages so far no excuses Just work lack of computing skills lack of writing skills weakness etc etc Russell 09 Dec 1999 Archive Oct 99 The task of merely cleaning up has been considerable Port garboard has been removed allowing mud concrete and ballast out and I d like to thank gravity for its help The deck and deck beams carlins etc were all beyond any hope and only half of it was good enough to be used as fuel in our woodburning stove Large sections of the beamshelf fell away while deck beams were removed and some frame tops seemed to gain inspiration from the beamshelf and followed suit As a result most of the temp deck beams are bolted through the bulwark capping plus a few nailed bolted through the planking Engine beds were made up from six 6 lengths of 7 by 5 oak When removed they were so heavy that evicting them from the boat was a major task and the combined weight of timber and helpers manhandling it over the frames of such a delicate structure had me worried several times I may yet find a new use for the timber as it seems to be in very good nick and has few if any fastenings or nails Frames have been examined and those that may be retained have had liberal coats of boiled inseed cuprinol The keelson ends one frame short of the aft dead wood and over the years in the putty she has hogged badly at this weak point As soon as she arrived in the garden acros were fitted under the counter and large bottle jack used to raise the heel of the keel Several turns all round Twice a day have picked her arse up nicely and she has only 2 of hog left It was a joy indeed to see the sheer and shape return day by day Alas she has dried out too much now and refuses to lose that last hint of hogging so I ll have to live with it and I m sure the task of fitting new garboards will be all the more interesting The stem and apron were both unwell and came away with little more than a sharp tug Two large lumps of best local oak have now arrived and will become apron and stem soon The heap of mud and rubble that remains under the boat is huge and I must find a way of getting rid of it I have given a lot of thought to the rebuild and listened to advice from many quarters Talk in sailing clubs and the like always starts the speculation about cruising the world and so many seem to

    garden acros were fitted under the counter and large bottle jack used to raise the heel of the keel Several turns all round Twice a day have picked her arse up nicely and she has only 2 of hog left It was a joy indeed to see the sheer and shape return day by day Alas she has dried out too much now and refuses to lose that last hint of hogging so I ll have to live with it and I m sure the task of fitting new garboards will be all the more interesting The stem and apron were both unwell and came away with little more than a sharp tug Two large lumps of best local oak have now arrived and will become apron and stem soon The heap of mud and rubble that remains under the boat is huge and I must find a way of getting rid of it I have given a lot of thought to the rebuild and listened to advice from many quarters I still have little idea what I will do with her when she is back on the water Talk in sailing clubs and the like always starts the speculation about cruising the world and so many seem to assume that anybody putting so much work into a large boat must surly be intending on long passages south and lots of charter work to pay the bills I am not so sure 42 LOD is getting large enough by modern standards but in an east coast smack the counter is little use for anything but storage and headroom is for the vertically challenged only I realise that I am doomed to a lifetime of Smack back But would others pay for the chance to acquire such an affliction Old wooden

    chance to sail on Telegraph a few years ago That did it I had to have a boat like that of my own Since acquiring Victorious I ve also been lucky enough to spend some time crewing on Leader In recent years I ve been working as a Shipwright on wooden boats of course which leads me onto the wood I ve always found the beauty of wood fascinating and loved making things from it from games to posh wood interiors for plastic boats I ve already made the ships wheel for Victorious 5 diameter in laminated Teak on stainless steel a real eye catcher Oh by the way did I mention music my third passion in life Having played saxophone in my youth I took up guitar in my 30s Finding all the affordable instruments somewhat brash and tackilly built I decided to build my own and spent a couple of years developing a design that turned into a small production run of several 6 string instruments a bass and a 12 string Despite getting superb reviews in the music press commercially the enterprise failed although the few people who were bold enough to buy them are thrilled with them both from a musical and aesthetic point of view if you re interested in a beautiful guitar with a difference just click to the page on them as I still build them but only to special order And yes I did also carry on with the playing this was what enabled me to develop the original design into its present form I find playing takes me into another dimension where my mind can explore its creative potential in all spheres not just musically What of me the person A bit of a loner very individualistic With one exception a
