16ft Bass boat that I’ve used for the last 3-years as a launch for family trips on the the Essex coast.Work done: – The hull is sound and repainted (2021) with 2-part yacht paint. Not a perfect finish but fine for a boat of this value. – I have kept the boat on a drying mooring so the bottom is antifouled (2021) and ready for another 12months in the water.- mild-steel keel band has been upgraded to 5mm Aluminium (2019) – Wooden keel bands refurbished with oak (2020). – New Bow eye (2019) with reinforced fiberglass back)Hull. – large open cockpit, draining into bilge. Manual bilge pump and drain plug. Inspection hatch to bilge. – heavy duty cover. – seating on both sides. – deck white paint (which requires re-doing at some point) with black fittings (also in need of repainting) – bouyancy bags (old but holding air) in both sides. – outboard well – make the boat very safe as there is no need to lean over the stern to deal with any issues. – the boat has proved a good size – big enough that it feals safe, comfortable and stable when afloat; small enough that I can manhandle it by myself when ashore.Power – 4ph Ailsa Craig. Being serviced even as I post this advert. Very light weight (air cooled) and simple (i.e. no water pump to maintain). – large 5gallon petrol can and 1gallon reserve. – oars / rowlocksOther kit – mix of small fenders. – painter – heavy mooring warp – braided warp safety / decorative line to attach round gunnels. – boat hookTrailer- good little trailer with new bearings (2020) and mudguards (2021). – rollers are stiff – they’re fine for me since I only launch and recover once a year but if you’re going to launch/recover frequently then you will want to upgrade. – winch – jockey wheel. – retaining chain. – ratchet strapA great package.
