    Parkstone Bay info wanted

    Hi Neal yes I am aware of it being a displacement hull and not going to be a fast boat i have bought some books on working out what hp engine to use but at the moment the maths involved is going to take a while to sink in fuel economy is what is important for me to get maximum use from a boat if i have to find £ 50 to £100 pounds a time to go out any distance it's not going to get much use (Ialso own a shetland with a rather thirsty merc 75 on which is costly to run ) 2 things i put on the paper when looking to buy something more deck space ie for more people and fuel economy oh and one thing not on the paper fell in love with the boats shape too! .I know she will be a plodder but not sure if the day came when needed to punch tide back through the ferry the little sabb would be up to it although this little motor is virtually indestructable and will go on all day on very little fuel.not looking for speed just enough grunt to get home if conditions change like they tend to do every now and then if when finished i find she doesent do everything i would like her too i consider it like a piggy bank and although will never recoup cost of labour she will only increase in value so when sold will have a little more cash to buy something a little better time will tell

    the first pic shows boat as I purchased it second shows the new cabin/wheelhouse moulding sat on the boat (i built a mould first then layed it up ) third is a view of inside when stripped out still a lot of work to do and a long way to go but should be a lovely boat when finished if enough interest i will add more photos of the build as i go

    Parkstone Bay info wanted

    Hi all Earlier this year I purchased a new project (someone hit me with a big stick ) I bought the boat towed it back from devon and set about working on it and as usual found more rot than i needed to find so eventually i ended up with just a bare hull she is 21 ft long with a beam of 7 foot approx sizes and made from grp (except all the topsides which were in ply and hardwood . Any way I am trying to track down the maker of the hull (No Name plate) so far i have narrowed it down to possibly being the hull very much like a parkstone bay which were i believe built by F C Mitchell at the then named Mitchells boat yard in Poole any one out there with any info on these boats Photos Publications sales mags etc hiding in the loft ? One of the things i'm trying to determine is size of inboard to use it has at present a sabb 10 hp single cylinder diesel whis although i love the sound of am thinking is not really going to have enough steam for my intended use out in the bay and around to swanage etc.I have already made a new grp cabin/wheelhouse and rear deck and am in the process of making moulds to form new gunnels still lots to be done (looking back it would have been easier to bought a new hull moulding gone from there )!! a few pics added for you to see of work so far All your thoughts and comments welcome

    wanted asap

    Hi All am looking for somewhere to store and work on my 21ft boat she is having a total refit bard yard etc access to power would be an advantage but not essential I would prefer however to be able to gain access to the boat at all times so I can spend all my spare time getting the work done I'm estimating at present the work taking at least 3 to 4 months all suggestions of where to look welcome really desperate to get her moved from her current space or she may well have to be sold she is outside now so open space not a problem kind regards mike hall

    Trailer Theft

    Hi all This note is not about a boat trailer but a tipper trailer a good friend and work collegue of mine has just had his tipper trailer stolen from upton they cropped off three locks and must of towed it out of the shingle drive because at the time it was full of rubble !!!! and in the middle of the night !!!!! so if any of you are offered one please let me know . as usual the insurance dont want to cough up the full price of a new one. so it is going to be expensive to replace . i am sorry for posting something non boating or fishing but it's his and my living. tight lines all mike
