J133 – Going free to good home

Sounds like J133 is in need of quite a bit of work, but if you are looking for a cheap shell for a complete rebuild then this might be worth following up on:

Association Gets Full set of Jollyboat plans from ebay

Andrew Richardson – the association’s ‘Keeper of Records’  has just had a great success on ebay.

A full set of Fairey Marine plans came up for auction and the owner emailed me to ask if I was interested.  I was, but it made far more sense for Andrew to bid and me to pray that he got them rather than try and compete.

Well he did and I was thrilled!  It is a fantastic bit of news for the asociation and a completely irreplaceable part of the history for our class.  Not quite sure how yet, but I hope that we will be able to digitise them and put them up on the site here some time in the future:

Here is what the full set of plans  includes:

Jollyboat looking for new home

Jollyboat Sula is looking for a careful new owner.

She needs quite a bit of work doing to her.  She was given to me a couple of years ago, by the owner at the time, who had started to undertake the work, but had then lost faith.

She certainly needs new decks and a few holes in the hull need fixing.  But there is no doubt that she is certainly worth it.  I was going to do this work myself, but at moment my hands are full with getting J3 back on the water in time for the Nats in July.  I am also picking up another Jollyboat project in the near future, so Sula really needs to find a new home.

I have got a centre-plate and rudder, most probably a boom, but I suspect the mast has had it.  There are some sails, but I would really suggest getting some new canvas I think.

She was a Fairey hull that was fitted out by another boat-builder.  I do not know exact date, but suspect she is an early boat 1955-1957.  She does not have a number as she has never been registered.

I do have some photos and paperwork as I have been in touch with the original owner.

I am not looking for any money, but would just really like to see Sula go to a good home.

She is presently down in Cornwall, but I may be able to deliver her if you could pay the petrol.

If you want to hear any more, please do just post here or contact me on ed@cvrda.org.

cheers

Old Jollyboat in Rafters – J87 I think

I knew there was another Jollyboat in Bristol, but I didn’t know where….until someone rang me up and told me it was hanging in their garage. He was moving so we needed to get it out of the garage. I held onto it for a while but then found someone to take it on as a project. I havn’t heard back from them recently….so I hope the project is coming along OK.
