This is an auction for the Yachting Monthly “Senior” designed by Kennith Gibbs.Included in the auction is the road trailer.We’ve had her since she was completely restored in 2013. (the first photo shows her when we bought her in 2013). Subsequent photo’s were taken this weekend.The boat is 16 and a half feet long and sleeps two.Gaff rigged, plus furling jib. Sails were fine last time we unfurled them (about 3 years ago)Mast is wooden and in good condition (not sure of exact wood type)Tiller and rudder are wooden and in excellent condition (see picture)Hull sanded down and 2 coats of anti foul added in May this year.It has 2 sleeping berths complete with cushions (see photo)Full cover good condition.Chemical toilet (we’ve never used it!) electric bilge pump.The boat was lightly used in the Lake District some years ago, and was then stored outside wrapped in her cover and tarps in the open for about 3 years. We brought her down to Cornwall this spring with the intention of using her on the Camel estuary. Sadly, she’s suffered in storage and now needs someone to make her sea worthy again.There must be at least two small holes in the hull as when we took her onto the Camel this summer for a test the bilges filled up with water after about half an hour, so we took her out and she’s sat in the boatyard ever since. There is quiet a bit of deterioration in some of the plywood on the side of the cabin as well, which means some of the ply has peeled away. Overall, the boat is not seaworthy and should be viewed as a restoration project. We’ve had some great times on her but just can’t give her the attention she now needs. A wonderful project for someone to get their teeth into, ready for next spring sailing. A great little boat big enough to sleep on and small enough to tow with a normal size car.The boat is dry stored in Wadebridge, Cornwall, on the trailer ready to drive away.Please get in touch if you have any questions.
