The lecture is based on my extended experience with pontoon boats and fishing opportunities from these. There will be opportunities for questions and comments both during the lecture and before and after! Built in Denmark almost certainly as a fishing boat on the traditional lines with bluff bows and that lovely elliptical counter stern that is such a signature of the Danish boats. She was sailed to Grimsby during WWII where she was used for many jobs, including fisheries, as a supply vessel and later as a dive boat. Heavy oak planking on closely spaced square section oak frames, all fastened with iron dumps.  Some planking has been replaced in recent years using Iroko.
Gardener 6LXB, completely rebuilt with less than 100 hours running time.  New crankshaft, pistons, liners and heads. Access to the ship through the midships wheelhouse just forward of the raised deck.  Hydraulic wheel steering with an external wheel position on the stern. Full breadth saloon with a galley on the port side.  Steps down going forward to four sleeping cabins with two separate heads with showers.

Birthe Marie, a 1933-built Danish fishing boat, found her way to England's River Tyne where she was found by Mark Jardine who restored her for charter. With the largest-ever number of nominations in the history of the Awards, we have decided this year to split them into two categories: above and below 40ft LOA. Peter Willis introduces the 20 contenders, ranging from a 12ft dinghy to a 91ft Thames sailing barge. Greg Powlesland is best known for his authentic restoration of the 60ft (18m) 1892 Nicholson cutter Marigold, completed in 1993 – see CB82 and 83. Skylark, the 1937 53ft (16.2m) Sparkman and Stephens inboard yawl (above), had ended up in California by the late 1990s and was in need of a total restoration. Senhor Manuel Champalimaud was amazed to rediscover Sea Lion, the 67ft (21m) 1953 Abeking and Rasmussen yawl of his youth; she had belonged to his mother. The last Thames sailing barge in trade – and engineless too – Cambria, 91ft (27.7m), built in 1906 by Everards of Greenhithe, continued under her legendary skipper Bob Roberts right up until 1970.
Launched in 1933 as a Danish fishing boat, KA 126, based in Kalundborg, Birthe Marie, 36ft (11m), somehow found her way to the River Tyne, where Mark Jardine, who runs ecologically sound boat trips on the Scottish island of Iona, found her in 2005.
One of the smaller boats in this year’s shortlist, at 24ft 6in (7.5m), but with a huge pedigree and historical significance, St Patrick is probably the last survivor of the lightly-built Rater yachts which were so popular in the 1890s, and enjoyed a brief renaissance after the Great War, which was when, in 1919, she was built as one of four identical boats.
Designed and built by Arch Logan, New Zealand’s answer to Wm Fife, the 1905 Rawhiti (pronounced Raf-fit-tee) was intended to be “a yacht to eclipse all others” – which pretty much meant other Logans.
Restoration is often about rediscovering the original boat within a much (and often badly or unsympathetically) altered shell. The motor launch used by Frank Beken to capture his classic images of yachts in the 1920s and 30s, Rosabelle was entrusted in 2004 to the Isle of Wight’s Classic Boat Museum for restoration by their volunteers. A 42ft (12.8m) German Frers ketch built in 1945, Vagabundo II came into the old Franco-Argentinian shipping family of Fabre by accident – Philippe Fabre had mistaken her for another boat he had known  – but she made a good 21st birthday present for his son Robbie, soon to become her chief restorer. The fourth and latest in Dr William Collier’s campaign to reinstate the 15-Metres as an active class, the 1909 Fife-designed Hispania was discovered by him, being used as a houseboat in West Mersea. One of  the oldest Itchen Ferry yachts, Nellie, 21ft 9in (6.6m), was built by Dan Hatcher 150 years ago, in 1852. Essex Melody, with her distinctive reverse sheer inspired by  Sopranino, the original Transatlantic 19-footer, was designed by John Scarlett, one of the founding figures of the East Coast OGA, and built by him in Maldon, 1957-9.
One of those yachts that lifts everybody’s spirits, Kelpie – built 1903, Mylne-designed forerunner of the metre class – is proof that a boat doesn’t have to have dropped into a grave to benefit from restoration.


The epitome of the gentleman’s motor yacht, Gralian was bought to live aboard, which has happened – after an unanticipated deep restoration, right down to the rotted hog, caused largely by rainwater ingress.
Olga, the Bristol Channel pilot cutter built by Bowden of Porthleven in 1909, is now owned by Swansea Maritime Museum, which has been running a continuous keel-up restoration with T Nielsen at Gloucester Docks since 1995, culminating last winter in a  ‘hstorically correct’ refit to the interior – but with modern safety touches. Roy Aldworth’s restorationof the 1935 26ft (7.9m) Harrison Butler sloop Mischief deserves respect, not only because he took it on at all – “I knew that if I didn’t save her, she’d be lost for ever,” he told us – nor just because he undertook the job single-handed, but because of the care and thought that went into the job, the attention to detail and the extent of the work required. This year’s smallest restoration, Swallow was the boat of that name in the 1974 film of Swallows and Amazons. I will among other things talk about the different types of boat, materials and construction. A buyer should instruct his agents, or his surveyors, to investigate such details as the buyer desires validated.

She was taken to Loughborough Marine Interests in Portsmouth, Rhode Island, in 2003,  where her interior was gutted before significant repairs to her hull and deck were made, such as replacing her stem for instance.
By the time her present owners found her just over a year ago, lying in Annapolis, Maryland, she was in pretty poor condition, kept afloat by pumps. She was one of the first designated vessels on the National Register of Historic Vessels, but languished and deteriorated until 2007 when a Heritage Lottery Fund award of ?990,000 was made and restoration could begin.
He moved her to Amble Boat Co, where major hull work was carried out, before trucking her to Oban, and then motoring her round to Mull. A quest and a labour of love for William Collier, yachting historian and now director of GL Watson & Co, the firm founded by her designer, she was traced to a garden in Scotland. Robbie, now 23, currently at IBTC Lowestoft, and with degrees in marine technology and boat design and production, gathered a team of fellow students and starting in January tore into the work needed to restore and refit Vagabundo, sleeping on board, and working first through a wish list (item one, remove all portholes for rechroming) and then the results of a survey, dealing with floors, linkings, deck, taffirail, movement in the hull and varnish on the spars, plus replacing the swing-keel engine and many other jobs, to have her ready for Les Voiles de Saint-Tropez in September, where she was widely admired. Just before she was about to be chopped up by the council, he hauled the broken-backed 63ft 5in (19.3m) hull out of the mud and handed her over to a new charitable foundation in Spain to see her through her restoration, firstly at Fairlie in the UK, then at Astilleros de Mallorca. She’s been undergoing a pre-anniversary restoration for the last eight years by her owners, the Waddington family, who run Wicormarine in Portsmouth Harbour. When new owner Pelham Olive acquired her in 2008, he took her straight to Fairlie to commence a winters-only restoration programme, completed this year. A five-week tidy-up stretched into nine months, with owners Jonathan and Helen Lewis taking it on the chin, and, in Helen’s case, donning overalls to help out. The boat had lain neglected for 20 years, her transom had holes in it and her stem was gone. Dynameme, a Yachting World 5-tonner,  25ft 5in (7.4m), has been restored by Harbour Marine Services at Southwold after lying neglected for 15 years.
Bought at auction by a group of Ransome fans in 2010 she was sent to Pattersons in the Lake District to be restored and have an extra keel fitted to improve her sailing.

Now he and his partner Katie Fontana have taken on another Nicholson, the 56ft (17m) gaff yawl Patna (right). The Portuguese lawyer decided to buy her and have her fully restored, and chose the UK’s Southampton Yacht Services for the task.
The new owners moved her to Chesapeake Bay and in conjunction with S&S set about her restoration.
Tim Goldsack was appointed to carry out the restoration, and moved Cambria to Standard Quay, Faversham.
That was in 2008, and for the last three years Birthe Marie has lain on a swinging mooring in a sheltered bay, while Mark has continued to work on her, fitting a coachroof, fashioning spars from raw timber or telegraph poles and many other tasks.
She’s has been given a meticulous restoration by Fairlie, and was rewarded with the Je ne sais quoi award at this year’s Panerai British Classic Week.


After six years, the restored Rawhiti is back in the water and ready to engage in New Zealand’s January-to-March racing season. Built as a cruising yacht by Charles Sibbick in 1900, the 47ft 8in (14.5m) yawl had been laid up for 14 years, partly outdoors, and was much rain-damaged when boatbuilder couple Guy and Chloe Savage found her. However, once they started seeking advice they became convinced she was worthy of a full restoration. As a result Kelpie has lost three tonnes of excess weight, with additions, fittings, an overweight rudder and a steel beam all stripped out.
The result, by Harbour Marine Services at Southwold, is an immaculately-restored 45ft (13.7m) 1937 Saunders Roe Medina class boat replete with period features. New owner Vicky Pratt was attracted to this “good looking small wooden hull under scruffy covers” and asked for a “modestly costed” restoration. She was displayed on the Classic Boat stand at the London Boat Show, where the final touch, repainting her name, was carried out, and she was relaunched on Coniston in April. She was launched in 1920, though Greg thinks her lines echo pre-First-World-War sensibilities.
An almost complete restoration was undertaken, replacing many frames, her ring frames, new bronze floors, her mahogany planking and the deck. Everything has been done in  compliance with CIM racing rules, to suit her new home, Cannes, and her new life taking part in the Med regattas.
She was relaunched in March, and in July, under skipper Richard Titchener took part in the Thames Barge Match, coming first in her class. Says Mark: “The aim from the beginning was to produce a capable traditional sailing vessel for use as a skippered charter boat.
After removing the inauthentic doghouse, they set to work to trace (without plans or lines) the original cockpit layout.
The big expense was the reconditioned engine, funding for which was raised through a sponsored row on the Thames and a grant from the Transport Trust. The final item was a new lead keel, to counteract weather helm, fitted this year in time for the 80th anniversary Round the Island Race. She’s now returned to her original rig and interior, and looks and sails all the better for it. HMS accepted the challenge and although the work proved quite extensive, Vicky is more than pleased with the result. These counter-sterned Danish boats look very good with a proper rig and sail remarkably well. They bought her in 2005 and sailed her round to Greg’s Helford River home in Cornwall, where a highly inappropriate 1956 deckhouse was removed, before moving her on up to Gweek Quay.
Getty had some “minor things to do” before she was declared finally ready to sail during the 2011 summer season at the Med regattas. Clearly she had to meet the MCA’s code of practice by the end of the work, so the intention was to respect the boat’s origins and history but not to put her back to how she was built. The hull proved in fairly good shape, but the interior needed totally rebuilding, reusing original materials where possible for a traditional feel. Their design and heavy construction lends itself to building a proper little blue water sailing ship. Therefore she would make a great opportunity for someone to start a business doing fishing trips, dive charters or sightseeing trips.
As a near sistership to Stormy Weather, Skylark is one of those glorious boats to sail, and her restoration is sympathetic to her age – plus it all looks bulletproof.
The restoration has changed some of the layout of the stately yacht and a new interior welcomes guests with dark panelled woods and luxury fittings.
He is a serial restorer of classic yachts and he says of Saunterer, “She turns heads like no  other yacht I’ve owned.” She was featured in CB277.
David Walkey did the hull and structural work, while Greg oversaw the design and aesthetic side, with the help of various gifted craftsmen.
Sea Lion is a beautiful yacht, and CB caught up with her in Palma a couple of months after her relaunch.
