    Seven years ago this boat was given to me making it my first boat. Turned out to be a good starter boat as the hull was almost finished. Having painted it the way the write up seamed to say. Then ready to run and into the water. The boat being top heavy it tipped and took on water. Back to the work bench and striped and left to sit until this year. The boat is almost finished needs rudder motor and ballast

    Hi Jimbob Thank you for the pictures. Must say I still don't like the look of the sinking boat as that's what happened to mine when first water tests.Seeing them underwater is not the best result as I didn't think she was a submarine when I built her.

    Hi Newby7 at least 30 years ago this boat was given to me by my late brother in law Terry it was a Billings Kit still in the box built in our spare bedroom remembering all the plank on timbers that formed the hull. Photos show "her" sailing happily @ Portishead Lake in Bristol I say happily till a strong gust of wind caught it & almost flipped it over it then took on a lot of water & sank as you see in the photo luckily it managed to stay partly submerged & it was rescued by some young guys in a Swan boat that they hire out on the lake. It has now been completely gutted & all the electrics replaced it lives to tell another tale πŸ˜ŽπŸ‘
