RESTORED NEEDS FINISHING
Now on trailer ready
NOW UP FOR NO RESERVE AUCTION MUST GO
regret up for sale is my much loved Classic Colvic 20 fishing-pleasure boat
which I have been slowly restoring for over 3+ years, I started it 10 years to
late in life and sadly ran out of time and energy and poor health is forcing me
to admit I am never going to be able to finish it.
It was in a
sorry state when I got it (see link for pics) and I didn’t realize the work, time &
money needed to properly sort it. Please understand this has had much love,
sweat, and more than a few grand thrown at it, and has not been quickly just
nailed together, I was so lucky to have the advice, guidance, and much needed
hands on help of one of Plymouth’s best boat builders for the first 12+ months
without who It would not be about 75% completed, don’t get me wrong there is
still plenty to do and lots will depend on your enthusiasm & D.I.Y skills to
determine whether it ends up a 6/8 or 10 grand+ boat. I’ve done far too much to
write it all down so please look at the photo’s on the LINK BELOW to judge the
work already complete, and then give me a call, if it’s of interest to you, thanks
with a full bead blast of the hull, 2, any hull repairs were properly carried
out and the rudder & all keels removed and renewed, 3, the hull then was
turned over sanded and re-coated with 7 coats of gel coat, It’s had first &
second sanding but needs a fine sand and polish. 3, Turning it back over a new
19 mm external ply deck fitted, and fiber glassed in, 4, we fitted a new fore-deck,
moved the gunwales forward 50 cm as I wanted more room on deck this meant a
smaller cabin, but still big enough. 5, new Cabin, cabin bunks, deck bunks
& helm box (seat) and kitchen area were made.6, New rudder and prop carrier cutlass bearing made and fitted,
7, I made
new engine mounts and have dry fitted the I.8 BMC engine (not included but available at cost) into the boat and cut &
aligned the prop shaft correctly.
8, I have
made a purpose built twin wheel road trailer to carry it which has rear brakes
new cables and alloy wheels, and is included
I also have
all the stainless hinges and latches to finish and I’ve made cushions for the
forward bunks head lining for the cabin, helm seat, portholes, fuel
tank and more, all included.
inventory it tells me I’ve spent just over £4000 to date, if you were to total
the labor hours & storage cost then I know I am going to make a loss but
it was started as a keeper not to sell so I am prepared to accept this.
Now over 2000 viewed this as a classified add with more than 40 watching it but the bargain price of 3 grand (complete), didn’t attract a buyer, but I really need it gone as storage charges are due, So its up for auction you decide what is worth, highest bidder will own it no reserve.
