Hi This little boat (Pocket Rocket) has been my pride and joy for many years and is in perfect working order. She is used every summer around half a dozen times and fully serviced at the end of each season. I have had the servicing done by a local guy Terry Patch for the first 6 years and then I have done it myself meticulously as it’s very easy to work on including impeller. She gets rinsed in fresh water including trailer ever time and has never been left in the water overnight. The make is an Arundel from Germany but I have never been able to find anything about it. It’s was upside down on a slipway for years in Axmouth Sidmouth and I just fell in love with the shape of it. I had expert advice on the restoration and the Gelcoat was filled and painted with high quality products that have lasted a long time. She has been stored in barn every winter and the red top decks have never faded in 15 years. She does need a tidy up and both trailer and boat have a few issues but nothing that is unsafe for towing or seaworthy. We don’t go out far obviously and just bomb around the bays and coves catching mackerel for BBQ on beach as she will beach easily. I treated the underside with concrete type anti foul that’s great for beaching without damage but due to lightweight makes her easy for exploring. The 18 HP Tohatsu engine is amazing and gets on plane super quick with top speed of 24 mph with 2 people. 400 hrs absolute maximum and runs on fresh air. Comes complete with Tohatsu 25 ltr fuel tank. The trailer is extremely strong and would take a boat 3 x the weight. It has had new wheels and is rinsed and greased every Launch. She is a bit tatty in places but a wonderful easy economical Launch and would make an amazing river boat. Hopefully she will catch someone’s eye and they will keep her going rather than just scrapping her and going for the engine and trailer which I feel would be worth £1k.Please feel free to ask any questions
