My husband has really put some hours into restoring his boat recently. If you have read any of my past posts you will know that this project/hobby of his has been ongoing for quite a while now.
It was about 4 years ago that we towed this back on a trailer from Caister having bought it from the Caister sea scouts. Then, it was in a very sorry state.
Michael has been working on it ever since. Unfortunately no progress was made last summer due to Michael snapping his achilles tendon but this year it is definitely coming together.
The boat originates from Eversons at Woodbridge and was built in 1943, there were just 29 built and this one in our garage is No 2.
They have been very helpful with advice and information and though not finished, the boat is looking really good.

Michael loves finding out about the boats he works on as well as putting them back together. He has even joined the Classic and Vintage Racing Dinghy Association. If anyone has any information about this boat, he would love to hear from you.

After hours and hours and hours of work can we dare to plan when it will actually go in the water.

Will the garage ever get to be used as a garage?
Probably not!
When this is finished some new project will come a long and I know that it will involve a boat plan and some wood.


  1. What a beautiful boat and so lovingly restored.

  2. Lets hope Michael gets the boat finished soon, with all the rain you might be needing it!

  3. Wow what a difference. So glad to see the boat coming along. It was an exciting time finding out about the boat and having the visit from Mr Everson. It would have been so wrong not to see the boat go to someone prepared to give it the tlc it needed Well done!
