J9 Pataka one of the most sucsessfull Jollyboats ever

J9 was rebuilt recently and is now in good hands. It was a really good job and they took an interesting approach to the problems the Jollyboat always has of keeping the hull rigid by putting in a set of ribs. This seems like a good idea on the whole as long as you don’t fall over them.

Jollyboat at the Isle of White Dinghy Museum

There are a few Jollyboats on the Isle of White, but I am afraid I am not aware of any of the still on the water.

I am told that there is one hanging from the ceiling of the Royal Squadron bar…..if you can confirm….do.

These are some photos of the Jollyboat in the museum. Will confirm number later.

I do like the centre-sheeting on this boat. This method used to be very common, but many boats that had it have now died and the few that still have it have been reverted to stern sheeting. I think there is a fair chance that I will use this on next Jollyboat that I renovate…..whenever that is.

Which I guess will be when I can next afford it

Welcome

Hi this blog-site has been put together in January/February 2008 to replace the rather old website that has not been updated in over 8 years. It is hoped that by being a Blog-site it will encourage the Jollyboat owners in the UK and beyond to share stories and discuss the boat that we all love.

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.

David Lynch the owner of J23 contacted me back in 98-99 about the re-building of Festina.

It took him a while, but he did a great job. You can find more details at http://www.bluedome.co.uk/festina/
