    I need a door for my boat. The maximum height is 62" this includes the frame, but if you have a door only it needs to be 5' high width not too worried but my hole is 575mm it is a restoration project so i can adjust the hole to suit but the height is crucial as i have a floor and a roof in the way :/

    there is no way i can remove all paint it just can't happen unfortunately, all i can do is sand it and go back to solid paint. it's a 26 broads cruiser so quite a large boat to paint

  11. Going to paint my boat with 2 pack international perfection. I gather i will need 2 pack undercoat but will i need a specific primer / barrier coat before the undercoat most of the boat has been painted with something before and is flaking off so i will have to get all the flakes off and rub it right back there is also a bit of original gelcoat but that has loads of deep scratches that will need filling

    Eastick Falcon 26

    well i took delivery of her today finally been a long 7 days waiting to have her delivered. GMR done the delivery with the use of his Hi-Ab he put it straight onto my trailer, which is where she'll sit while i restore her. Terrific chap and highly recommend him (apart from he went off with the boat keys so he's having to post them to me lol) she's a big ol boat esp on my little trailer which is only 6' wide so plenty of 4x4 posts holding her up until i can get the telegraph post out of the brambles or get some acro props

    Eastick Falcon 26

    Okies so i've just bought a boat made by Eastick's of Acle as far as i can gather they shut down in the 80's i know alot of these boats used to be on hire on the broads but not sure if mine went straight to the Thames as thats where it was last registered. i'm trying to find out more information about these boats and in paticular the 1 i have The name i have on the boat is Jane Anne sometimes on some paperwork it's Jane Ann also alot of paperwork it's down as an Eastwick they are very sinilar to the hampton safari's but slightly longer and slightly wider So far i have contacted and drawn blanks at Broads Authority Museum of the broads BSS Thames authority Museum suggested that Easticks had gone into partnership with Welpton and they were still at Acle Dyke But the only one i could find was Eastwood Welpton and the owners bought it 3 years ago after Mr Welpton died (5 years ago) so a blank there also. I managed to find an old one for sale on Norfolk boatshed but that is the only 1 i have found on the interweb. I am in contact with someone who owns 1 and he knows someone else in Norwich who has 1 also. But neither of them know alot about the actual boats. thanks
