    We wanted a project for 2012 we wanted a little boat for working 10 pots and a bit of mackeraling in the bay at Filey. One of the local lads had bought a hull that needed a little restoration, so we decided to go with it bought it and see what we could make of it.
    It came upside down on an old caravan trailer, first job fit new irons and sand down hull and painted it with 3 coats of Flo-coat

    Yes there is a few laid about all over Dave, we think this one belonged to our ex coxswain Graham, it had Filey painted on the side when we stripped it off.
    Strangely we paid the same for it as he paid for it brand new 40 years ago used to be called Angemma.

    Thought I'd update this topic now the boat has changed hands and we've done a bit to her,
    Well we decided we wanted sum storage in her head for anchor, rope etc! So we fixed in a basic wood frame with a board across the front and glassed it all in! [​IMG]
    With that done an lookin Sumat like we wanted I then made a ally chequer plate lid so it would also double as a seat

    Job done :)
