This is a Dixon and Sons dinghy in usable condition as a rowing boat. It is about 8′ long and I will provide proper measurements as soon as I can. To use with an outboard, the piece of wood which supports the outboard will need to be replaced as it has fallen away. The fibreglass hull is in solid condition and the internal gel coat is orange. I have just pressure washed it and most of the paint fell away easily, with a little more time with the pressure washer, I suspect that most of the paint will come off, ready for either rubbing back to the original gel coat or repainting. The boat has a watertight compartment in the bow with a serviceable screw down lid. The bench seat is solid. The gunwale has a serviceable rubber strip all the way around. The rubbing strake beneath the rubber strip appears to be cosmetic and either requires complete removal or replacement. There does not appear to be any structural problems present. It also comes with rowlocks and oars, but I haven’t included photos as they are in storage. I will photograph them and add them at my earliest opportunity. I used this boat as a tender to a cruiser on the Thames, but I no longer have the cruiser and have now lost the storage, so it has to go.The auction is for the boat only, but the trailer is available separately and I expect it will sell easily if sold on its own. Please contact me on the number below if you want it. The trailer is a road trailer, but small enough to be used as a launching trolley. You will see that my other item is a Bosun Sailing Dinghy which it was used for until recently. I am happy to split if required.The tyres on the trailer hold air and once tied down properly you will be able to tow it away. I don’t have a spare trailer board, so you will need to provide your own, although you can borrow mine as long as I get it back fairly promptly. You can borrow the trailer just to get it home if you wish, or I might be able to drop it off for you if you don’t have the ability to tow. I can help with loading at my end.If you want to have a look at it, or if you have any questions, please call Anthony on O77I5 632 I24. No reserve.
