J 161

Well this is my first ever blog.
This Fairey finished boat is being redecked with the help of my friend Ian, Jollyboat deck maestro and owner of the very beautiful J261 Jimini.
I have the Jollyboat owners association records and have been trying to keep a list of active boats.
Please let me know if you have a Jollyboat.
I have been phoning and emailing to get as many Jollyboats as are saillng to Bosham Classic boat revival 25 and 26th June.
At least 5 boats going and of course lots of classic day boats and CVRDA boats.

This is why the decks needed replacing - extensive areas of delamination.

Sula now desperate for Rescue

Jollyboat_sula_7_sm_

Jollyboat Sula is still looking for a good home.

She is free for anybody who wants to just come and pick her up. All I would like is to see this wonderful old Jollyboat brought back to life. It would be quite possible to do so, but I don’t pretend that it wouldn’t be quite a big job.

If you would like to know more, please do just look at the photos at: http://bit.ly/imxj2l

and get in touch with me as soon as possible.

She really won’t last another winter.
