    Thanks. I'll have a look when their website re-opens.

    I think you're probably right, and I think it's all going to have to come off and start again.

    Thanks, but it's the actual tube which needs replacing, I need 4 metres to be sure.

    Here are the latest vids, split into 2 because of the 15 minute rule for Youtube amateurs: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bGXbvCYJ4WE https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xZ2Bs7yiDIA Part 1 will be along later, it's about the move and will take a while to nail together. Towards the end of 2b there's a look at the stuff covering the deck and I would be interested to know exactly what it is if anyone can identify it? Along side the pump out tube there's a 3/4" rinse tube which needs replacing, can anyone suggest the best place to shop?

    Ah, I'm not qualified to argue but I have heard mention of the Ocean 37 hull by Broom? Are they the same?

    Close but no cigar. I've just been over for a couple of days and had a more intense look. The Owl's davits have a centre support and the round bar is a solid, heafty beast of a thing. Interesting article though, thanks for posting. Also Chris, I found an orange ankle bracelet under a front bunk, any ideas who it may have belonged to? Funny place to keep it; probably came off in a moment of passion.

    Thank you. I keep getting quoted "Broom Ocean 37" for the hull. All I know is that I find it very easy to manoeuvre. I'm taking advantage of the weather and nipping over again tomorrow and Wednesday to take some decent record photos, among other jobs of course.

    I helped her load her stuff onto her back and sent off down the tow path, she's probably made it to the Falkirk Wheel by now. Or.. the dream of living on a boat didn't work out after 12 months so she's moved back on to dry land in Swindon. We've stayed friends though and I've promised her use of the boat when it's ready. If I hadn't bought the boat it would be a Glasgow student live aboard by now!

    Here's the vid of the first time I laid eyes on her, the boat that is!

    These two drawings were among the paperwork handed over to me with the boat. I have heard mention of the Santa Caterinas before and Santa Margherita but never Gipsy? To further add to the mystery: the drawings refer to port and starboard bunks in the aft cabin, but the Owl has a single double bed. I'm just loading a Youtube video but it's taking for ever.

    That would look nice but I think as it's way down the priority list I think I'll just have a go at making look a bit more completed. I would to find a pic of it before the saw came out!

    Hi John, It's not hinged but has two holes and two S/S pins at the foot. The wire stays have string at the bottom ends and I presume it's all to make it easy to take it down for bridges. Goodness only knows why it was sawn off but whatever the reason the job wasn't completed. I can almost see the point of wanting it shorter as it is taller than the top of the cabin. Gives me something to play with in between trips to the boat I guess!

    I was thinking more along the lines of stretching a bit inner tube accross the gap to save taking it down for bridges?

    Yes it has. Apologies for the poor quality photo, although it's taken on my phone, for some reason it's soft focussing.

    Can anyone suggest an appropriate punishment for the person who did this?
