Great little boat.
Biggest advantage is
that it will fit in a small garage easily, and is small enough for a
1 man launch with no problems at all. It can also fit past some of
the boulders put in by the Lake District National Parks Authority to stop people
launching for free.
13 foot long (add 18
inches for trailer hitch) 5 foot 8 wide, cab/cockpit is 3 foot 8

I have the original
seats if you want them, but they are tatty so I took them out and
tended to sit on the sides, I cut some old school chairs down that

if you leave it all winter the tyres go down a little bit,
Selling because I
need the garage to store things during a house move.
Pictures are the
description sold as seen – but very solid hull hat has not been
bashed around, though the go-faster-stripes are poor.
Stored at Arnside,
and I live in Oxenholme so come ready to tow away after auction, you will need a back board or a disregard for towing laws 🙂
Summer is coming after a really crap year – I have had this for a few years and had many great trips out. Time to get ready for Post-Covid boat trips I would say.
