    Eastick Falcon 26

    i'm not disputing what has been said, far from it, i'm extremely happy with everyone's input and for their help and definately don't want to upset anyone the only thing is the brochure says 27' and as far as i know mine is 26' but saying that not sure if the brochure had a mis-print as it also says they were at Wargrave yet companies house has them down at Wasgrave

    The one i spoke to said try the Brundall one, so i did and as you say yes very helpful but couldn't help at all. I've just messaged Gerry from Hoseasons so fingers crossed she might remember somehting as she did say she's been there for over 40 years hopefully they might have some paperwork somewhere

    i can' actually remeber who i rung now, but i did say did you used to be swancraft at henley and he said we were sort of mine is the same blue but mine has a white roof (can't quite see the roof on that pic) i did notice it has the bluebird logo of hoseasons i am in contact with gerry at Hoseasons who's lovely and loves the history side of the boats, she also said she has loads of old brochures at her home and is sifting thru them for me to try and find more info. this might be one for me to tell her about. i really need to measure mine and find out if it's 26 or 27' it's a pity no-one knows anyone that worked at swancraft

    Hi Dan, no it wasn't missed, i rung them and they only did either 25 or 27' models i never knew they did them in that sizes lol although i'm presuming mine is 26 i'm going to measure it next time i'm down there. swancraft aren't actually active anymore it's been taken over by someone else and they weren't really that knowladable or helpful, just dismissive unfortunately thanks for posting the brochure tho always love to see them, pity i don't have any in person

    they all came with rubber, so the ones with ali have been done by owners

    yes thats a cream topped 1 not sure who that is? i am in contact with summer dream, funnily enough he lives just round the corner from me too. i know there is another based in Norwich and i think there is 1 at WRC although James doesn't think it';s a falcon. I actually started a little FB boat called falcon 26 i'd love to get as many owners together as possible

    there was a mention of a chap called David Berry who used to own/work Eastick's he has since moved to France and is still active working at a boatyard there. if anyone knows his contact details and they wouldn't mind either passing mine on to him or giving me his that'd be brill

    yep anything previous to 77 the strake stopped at the front and had another little bit but they didn't line up. mine ( although now in the bin) went all the way round made of fibreglass and really hard but held on with steel coachbolts so the heads were visable all beit countersunk. but just galvanished steel so i had to grind them all off, took ages. and as alot of it was broken anyway i decided to bin the lot and change it for rubber

    not having a lot of luck here, just spoke to swan craft not in Henley anymore, they said it's not 1 of there's as they only did 25' & 27' but tbh i haven't actually measured mine lol not even sure how to measure it as i had a birchwood 33 which was nearly 35' long lol just spoke to someone at swancraft in Norwich and he said with the rubbing strake it sounds like a thames boat and asked where i got it from...... tah dah the Thames area..... but i have no way of tracing historic thames numbers or boats. i did ring someone from BWW and they weren't helpful in the slightest
