WEST WIGHT POTTER AX with road trailer etc. This is the larger version of the West Wight Potter constructed of birch ply encapsulated in epoxy.with its large amount of locker space , boom tent and shallow draft it makes an excellent cruiser for two people.She has been fully refurbished mainly cosmetically the original boat being in excellent structural condition and a credit to the original builders.The work carried out includes the following :Hull ( above the waterline)This has been taken back to the original epoxy coating primed and repainted with single part gloss.Unfortunately although the colour is uniform there are some signs of drag marks. these do not affect the integrity of the finish and only show up in certain lighting. They may polish out but I’m not an expert on this.Deck as above but re-painted with non-slip deck paint.Hull ( below the waterline)Original antifouling rubbed down and re-coated.Cabin sides and roof(exterior)Rubbed down, primed and repainted ( Non-Slip on roof) .Windows removed , resealed and refixed.Woodwork ( external )Stripped back to bare wood and re-varnished.Cabin ( interior ) All surfaces Lightly rubbed down and re-coated with satin finish varnish.New carpet fitted.Fittings.These have either been renewed or upgraded with new fixings and backing pads.Swivel sheet fairleads/ cleats fitted for either single handed/crewed use.Cockpit.Painted as cabin exterior, lockers painted with Danboline on top of original epoxy coating .Inventory:Road trailer with spare wheel in excellent condition (the bearings will be checked and renewed if necessary before completion of sale).Boom tent.Mainsail, foresail and spinnaker in good condition.Roller reefing .Optional clear hatch panel.Anchor (no warp or chain).Clinometer.2 fenders.Various warps.Boom support pole and s/s brackets. The latter will require fixing by the new owner.Rowlocks (but please note there are NO oars).Although there is no outboard included in the sale I do have a Seagull and small Honda both in excellent cosmetic condition.Although both were running when last used, this was several months ago and I therefore strongly recommend servicing.Either engine could be subject to negotiation.My original intention was to use the Potter for myself and wife. However having completed the refurbishment ,age and health issues have again caught up with me and apparently the work involved in maintaining my boats is not included as a relevant item in my exercise routine ! Please email me if you need any further information / photos and if you’re genuinely interested in buying the boat please contact me and arrange a visit ,we’re about mid-way between Blandford Forum and Dorchester, Dorset . I apologise for not having any photos of her rigged but at present raising masts is not feasible for me.
