    The Freeman 22 was a luxurious cabin cruiser built for the holiday trade. It was moulded in glass fibre in a choice of colours and had an insulated superstructure, with a double berth and two single berths. It was powered by an in-board petrol engine.
    Length - 22ft
    Beam - 7ft 6ins
    Draft - 2ft
    Cruising speed - 8–9 knots
    Weight - 26cwt
    Engine - Ford 105 E watermota with a 2:1 reduction gear on a flexible drive

    The model of the Freeman 22 was a free plan given in the Model Boat magazine and was a project for my grandson who actively worked on all aspects of the build, the parts were all cut using a fret saw and trimmed with a sander and then built up on a building board. The hull is sheeted in ply as is the deck and superstructure. The hull was fibre glassed for additional strength and then painted using acrylic paints.

    You've made a nice job of that.

    Many years ago my family had a property on the River Avon near Pershore and our neighbour had a Freeman 22. I was always envious of the cruisers with inboard engines!

    We had a Norman 20 with an outboard, which wasn't a bad boat, but not as good as an inboard, especially the fine timber hulled ones that used to glide serenely past with barely any wash. Happy days.
