J335 – Chydorus

Late Fairey Jollyboat J335 – Chydorus is looking for a new home .

J335 is as far as I know the 2nd newest Fairey Jollyboat in existence in the UK.

I have had her for a few years and was planning on rebuilding her to a more modern state of tune.  I had an Int 14 mast and intended to mount it on a crew deck in the front of the boat, with full length  side-tanks, so she could be brought up dry after a capsize.

Currently she needs some work doing to her.  For sure there is a hole just in front of the trasom in the lower hull, which would be easy enough to fix.  There is also quite a bit of decking that would need replacing.  For myself, I would replace the the whole deck, but it would be possible to patch if you would prefer.

She comes with an original wooden-top reynolds mast, both wood centre-board and heavy steel plate.  There is a rudder and tiller, sails and other bits, but as I said, it was always my intention to replace most of this gear with modern stuff.

There is an old cover and an old trolley, with a dodgy trailer…
