I already mentioned in another thread ("Any Clues") that three boats have been dumped in my workshop to see if I can find a buyer for any of them.
1) Caldercraft "Joffre" Tug, already built but in grave need of TLC with the propshaft tight and the rudder shaft too tight to move. The vessel is filthy dirty.
2) Billings "Le Pourquoi-pas", hull assembled with decks, remainder of kit & fittings look to be complete
3) Billings "Smit Nederland" Nr 528 - unstarted kit but does not have detail fittings

I can post any of these boats and would appreciate a sensible offer for any of them - I do need the space to get on with my own work. Please PM me for any further information

I would love to have the Joffre if she is the twin screw one,
But I think you are in Scotland if you are then sending it via some carriers would cost also it may get damage.

Good luck with the sales.

The Joffre is the single screw version.

Don't worrk about shipping from Scotland, I have spent years sending high value electronics by carriers and have only ever had a problem once and that is because the courier threw it (and was seen doing it!!)

I knew just what you mean, I was a carrier some time back.

Best of luck with the sales.
