This year I bought an unstarted kit, but, sold it to a club member.
A month later one of the club member wish to swap for a faster boat and as my Sea Commander required a repaint and fittings.
I thought a swap for a very good working Hellen was a good deal.
So are making a dingy and replacing the broken prop with a brass one I had my second Hellen for the year.
Three weeks ago another Hellen pops up on Gumtree(aka EBAY), so it was to cheap not to buy it.
While waiting for it to come, I made a new stand, a dingy with oars and a set of fenders.
When it arrive the mast where laying on the deck broken, but , the posted pics show that.
The motor is a 11 to 1 geared MFA Como 919 D which runs OK.
A spare new plastic prop.
Started on the repairs, like the keel and deck around the mast bases.
The aft mast was broken in half, so I brass sleeved it.
The aft sail was missing and the forward sail was all glued up, so I bin it.
So this is the boat pics so far.
