    πŸ“ Barge find

    Hi all, Ive just discovered a MFH London barge kit in the garage. Problem is, that there are no plans with it, I’ve searched the Internet for details, but to no avail. Any one on here got any idea of how to go about finding a set. At the moment I seam to be getting all London barge crazy.
    Any help will be a bonus .
    Also I have acquired a Celia jane London barge, 42” fibre glass hull sailing condition but needs a referb, again, no plans
    Many thanks for any advice on either barge. thanks.
    Ken

    Hi Ken,
    I've just found in a post on another website dated 2014 that Speedline were marketing an updated version of the HFM barge kit. Named Annie. I have seen on their website a barge kit stated to be an improved version of the Annie. Sounds about the same size as your kit. I have heard that Speedline are difficult to contact.
    Might help,
    All the best,
    Nerys.

    I've tried googling Speedline but get a message saying that I've tried to google 'modeljetdrives.com' and it is an untrusted site. I know I found Speedline a year or two ago and contemplated buying a kit of Annie, then saw a post on another forum saying that they had ordered a kit three months earlier and had been unable to contact Speedline as they hadn't received the kit. Put me off somewhat. Think your barge must be this one. Would like to have a look at it sometime. I'm sure you'd be able to make it up without plans or instructions, Veronica is a good source of learning.
    Cheers,
    Nerys

    Sorry you aren't coming to Bluewater. Perhaps next time, though at the rate things are going with Kevin as well we might be able to run our own barge races. I'll get Alice to take as many pictures as possible so we can both learn. Although I'm planning on sailing, my main purpose is to look at as many barges as possible to see how other people do things.

    Cheers for now,
    Nerys

    Perhaps I'm repeating congratulations then.

    I’ve emailed a place that sell the barge, so I’ve asked if they will sell me the instructions.

    Well done for finding somewhere. Will be interesting to see what transpires, but I shouldn't worry, you know what you are doing, you'd soon work out what was what. Your plan of Veronica would act as a guide. All barges are laid out much the same.

    Cheers,
    Nerys

    If I get no results, I’ll guess she is a generic model, in which case , as you say , I’ll use Veronica as a guideline. But she will be put to one side for now, and I’ll get on with Veronica.
    Cheers for now
    Ken.

    The Speedline barge had a wheelhouse. Could be an indication as to parentage.

    We've booked the Friday night at the Dunchurch Travelodge, it's not too far from the Exhibition Centre. Coming home on the Saturday evening as I have to get back for dialysis.

    Cheers,

    Hi Ken
    I will have a look through my Thames Barge Plans for the HFM Barge.
    I Know I have Plans for the Celia Jane.
    If you come and see me at Warwick on the MASTMAN stand 33 just ask for Dave and I could lend you my CJ Plans.
