Narrow boat project for auction She is a ex-joey built 1910 and converted like in the 70’s.38 ft rivited hull. Unfortunately when being transported poorly a hole was created in the forward area hull. It had a ultrasound check by someone who wanted to extend length, add a larger engine & boatman cabin part shares, though since lost contact. The boat yard owner has now left because of health problems and would need removalTo take place fairly soon unless an arrangement is made with the new owner. The old yard owner suggested what he used to do instead of a whole plate front to back, drop a plate over the hole and pour s.r concrete poss re-barred in the forward to make it possible to sail where needed. If once finished an completed authentically I believe it qualifies for license exemption. I had a valuation document that’s lost at the moment from 5-6 yes ago read 12500, can’t be sure of condition.The interior could be salvageable, it also seems to have a slightly wider cabin. There’s a lot of structural ply in my garage along with some other items such as a small pot belly burner with chimney. The fuel tank is full, spare truck battery incl. Amount of bitumen. The engine is a Lister sr3, the cut off has snapped though but just lift up the hatch an tug the cable a little works . If put afloat with a tarpaulin over it would be alright to sail any where need be. R. I . M. A stands for the Royal Academy for Magical Arts an she had been previously owned Ali Bongo or Shriek of Araby, William Oliver Wallace,the children’s TV magician. There has been interest by the backcountry museum, and Caggy’sYard where it is is about a mile from the museum Tipton. It might be better i was contacted first if wishing to view but they are open all day. It’s a pity about the state of disrepair but this is well worth putting right. Genuinely feels lovely to sail and isn’t any slouch and bet she’d still be sailing in another 100 yrs time. Thanks
