  1. Wow, Nipper looks great! Sounds like experimenting with stain and lots of coats of varnish is the way forward. I do like having the boat in the shed but if someone sands something just after you've painted it can be frustrating. Sent from the Norfolk Broads Network mobile app
  2. Thanks Griff, I'll give it a go! Sent from the Norfolk Broads Network mobile app
  3. Hi all, I need some of your trusted knowledge. Next week I shall be spending a week in Norfolk sorting out Judith's top sides. The varnish needs to be removed and we need to start again really. This year we had to have the whole of the rear window section and deck removed and replaced, this now means we have two different types of wood and they are different shades. The new mahogany is a lovely colour and I'd like the rest of her to match this colour. How do I achieve this? Can you colour match varnish? Sent from the Norfolk Broads Network mobile app
  4. That's brilliant! We can do something similar with the Sea Master as it has a cleat near the cockpit so easy access to a rope. Sent from the Norfolk Broads Network mobile app
  5. Brilliant, hope you have a great time. They are super for fitting in to tight spots and making it look easy. Sent from the Norfolk Broads Network mobile app
  6. Thanks Grendel! We have lots of history with her so she's very special to us. They are brilliant boats and so easy to handle. Sent from the Norfolk Broads Network mobile app
  7. It most certainly is! Sent from the Norfolk Broads Network mobile app
  8. Here is our Sea Master 27, we are selling her due to the purchase of Judith. She was purchased with the intent of doing her up and updating parts as time went on but with the purchase of Judith this hasn't happened. She's a 4 berth boat, two singles in the forward cabin and the table converts in to a double. The heads is compact and has a chemical toilet with a shower. The galley contains a 2 burner hob grill and oven, with ample storage. She will need a new electric fridge as the current one is gas and we have had to disconnect this. In the cockpit she has two seats and a bench seat across the full width of the cockpit. She has folding screens and a canopy that's only a few years old. With everything folded down you need just over 6ft at Potter to get her through. She has a economical Perkins diesel engine. She will need someone who wants to make her their own and update bits and upgrade/ give her some TLC. We are open to sensible offers and if you are interested I'd recommend a viewing so you can see for yourself and understand the work required. Please message me direct if you have any questions Sent from the Norfolk Broads Network mobile app
  9. From what I can see Martham Boats have purchased a few from the Norfolk Broads Yachting Company and also Oliver's Sailing Holidays has Larkspur. Sent from the Norfolk Broads Network mobile app
  10. I'll make it this year, refurbed injector pump will be fitted this winter along with more hull work and we should be good to go. Sent from the Norfolk Broads Network mobile app
  11. I'm not sure if cut down is the correct technical term but in the case of Martham's Judith's and ours the step in the deck was removed(see photo) The one advertised has a step and also Judith M and Maggie Jane. Hope that helps explains it. Sent from the Norfolk Broads Network mobile app
  12. Yes we own Judith Windmill and she is the only one in private hands that's cut down as far as I know. Is this one for sale Judith of Martham? Sent from the Norfolk Broads Network mobile app
  13. We also missed it, I thought it would be the engine that might let us down. The engine was perfect in the end and just needed a long cruise. We had decided not to attend and stay north and give her a good run and it's a good job we did. Judith managed to open up two seams on both the port and starboard sides just below the waterline meaning the pump was going off every 15 minutes. We returned to Martham on Friday and she was pulled out within 10 minutes of arriving and work began straight away. She was launched 30mins later. We've monitored the situation and things have improved. Martham are going back tomorrow to access if she needs to come out for more work. I suspect she will but it won't take them long to sort. We'll be around next year, gutted to have missed this year's. Sent from the Norfolk Broads Network mobile app
  14. Jayne is looking very nice Grendel, they have just finished her today I think. Sent from the Norfolk Broads Network mobile app
  15. Well after what seems to be a long time....... Well it was really she's in the water and ready to use. Still some tidying to do on the inside but that's a whole new project in itself. Martham Boats have done a great job and spent a lot of time on her to get her back in the water. Just need to sort the injector pump and we will see some of you at Beccles!
