Restoration Of Judith

Recommended Posts

I'm new to NBN but not the broads, I've been going on the broads since I was only a few years old. My parents bought Judith 2 from Martham Boats back in about 1992. We had her in the family for a good few years till they regrettably had to sell her. After 20 odd years and coming back to the broads we have been lucky enough to find her again and purchase her back from the family we sold her too. She has been in a shed for a good few years and now the restoration is underway. Martham Boats are sorting her hull and next year the upgrade of the inside will start! The NBN seems the ideal place to ask questions and share experiences along the way. FB_IMG_1511728363093.jpg

Same here, you are more than welcome to look at Broadland Grebe. Those of us who have embarked on a restoration project will share your pain and pleasure.

She is definitely more than just a boat, many happy family memories on board and more to come. I can't wait.

We hired Judith 1 back in the summer of 75.  Lovely boat, but i was only 17, and was very envious of people on the big modern GRP boats.

She was in the Martham shed every winter while we were "doing" Star Premiere. 

Good luck with all that follows.

The planking on Judith is almost complete, they have done a great job. Soon it will be time to crack open the paint! IMG_20180701_095413.jpgIMG_20180701_095348.jpgIMG_20180701_095253.jpg
