Interesting Proctor dinghy on Ebay - unknown type

Post by Norfolk Heron » Mon Apr 20, 2020 5:14 pm

I have spotted an interesting Proctor (wooden) dinghy on ebay - looks like the hull only but in fair condition - bit like a small Osprey - might be one of the (I think there were some ) few Kestrels in wood. have a look and let us know ? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/classic-sail ... SwOzleEhw-

It’s a zenith.... there’s another thread about it somewhere as it was also on eBay a couple of months back...

Having looked at it in more detail I am sure that both of you are right and its a Zenith - from the photos and a query to the seller it appears to have both the sails, rudder and a mast and boom - probably usable. The rest of the boat looks surprisingly good from what can be seen and it looks like a really nice boat for £180 if someone wanted it and could use her - such a pity to see a boat of that quality probably more or less abandoned - perhaps someone will rescue her (there cant be more than 100 functioning ones in the country I suppose?)
