This glorious 53 footer is over 100 years old and is a fine example of the shipwrights art. Last year we were engaged to provide a "Cockle" canoe, the sort that was used by Cdr "Blondie" Hasler on his famous Cockleshell Heroes raid on German warships in the port of Bordeaux, for an exhibition at an hotel on Hayling Island. This is at first a simple sounding job of "just" repaint the topsides giving them a nice fair finish.Well, it's a steel hull, that although very well done, was home built.
Over the last ten to twelve years we have built up quite a reputation for the supply and fitting of  different makes of generator sets.
Units can be installed in even the smallest of craft with the major parts hidden away in lockers, under settees or bunks.
Another Troy,  JOCELYN  T1, was involved in a collision that took away the top section of her stem and bowsprit. A well known Falmouth boat, Tom Tit, belonging to David Carne, was brought in for new deck and mast step, with new deck layout, beams and kingplank, reported to have been built in 1903, she sailed again in 2008. We also maintain many wooden boats, doing the annual maintenance in the spring, and also looking after them during the season, if there are any problems, or small jobs that need doing, we can usually do them afloat, or bring the boat to the workshop.
We have also supplied new rudders, tillers, masts, gaffs, booms, spinnaker poles, and oars for a variety of craft. The lads from the school have recently replaced a number of laminated frames aft of the solid part of the deck as this was most in danger of distorting as it had no support whatsoever.
After the war was over Warrior had a number of owners and travelled as far as the Mediterranean and the Devon resort of Torquay coming to rest in a traditional wooden boat yard on the South coast of England. And here she is after we have nearly completed the restoration, work almost ready to launch. The road trip by one of our associates was uneventful and now Flica is safely awaiting the next stage of restoration.
She needed some attention below the waterline and we had been approached to undertake the major timber work for hull and topsides.


Made by the Isle of Wight company who took this form of construction to its peak during the sixties. It has been fastened not with copper nails and rooves but with Epoxy resin and micro glass beads used as a gap filler. In order to make a strong and perfectly fitting replacement it was decided to re-create the centreline structure in two parts, firstly a laminated apron to fasten the planks to and then a false stem applied after the hull planks have been re-fastened.
We can supply most modern well known makes, usually within only a few weeks but this is dependant upon the manufacturer and please be aware in this present economic climate that many manufacturers are building to order. Appropriate ventilation will be located discretely and professionally and to the highest standard.
We work closely with Riggers-uk at Penryn who can supply any rigging usually at very short notice, to get boats back out sailing again. Here we undertook major structural repairs with much hull planking replaced and completely refitted her with a new deck house and internal joinery. She was berthed ashore for the repairs in a modern south coast marina and attracted a lot of attention.
The timber has also been covered with an epoxy varnish to protect against the elements but has suffered from many seasons exposure to ultraviolet light.
This is a time consuming job and of course not easily done in the great outdoors in the weather we have had this summer.
We are very proud of our excellent reputation for good quality workmanship with wooden boat restoration and the same high standards are adhered to in our installation of domestic air quality machinery. 1912.This beautiful motor yacht was originally built as a naval pinnace in 1912 of double diagonal Mahogany on Oak frames. This happened with a large number of the smaller vessels because it would save fuel and get her there quicker but alas she never made it. Substantial changes had been made to create the quality finish required for a yacht which is how she went to Dunkirk.


Close to the beach she was dive bombed by German Stukas and suffered two near misses which served to crack ribs on both sides causing severe leaks and the crew to abandon ship. We have also fabricated new sets of bollards and had them galvanised in keeping with the original style. 5 & 6) Top and bottom mast sections being fitted together - much longer than the 65 foot workshop. After stripping back to bare metal and priming the process took in excess of three months [part time].
Unfortunately she has more recently sustained such severe damage from a fire that the vessel was nearly lost to us altogether. She was sold into private hands namely the Greiner family who used her as a gentlemans’ yacht until the second world war when, once again, Count Dracula saw action sailing from Ramsgate to Dunkirk where because of her power she was able to tow two 35 ft. I believe this to be the Hilfranor that belonged to Mr Douglas of the Douglas Aircraft Company who took his design team aboard her to brainstorm the conversion of the famous DC3 from a commercial airliner to a military plane when the Americans entered the war.
He knew the value of this little ship as he had spent a number of months in hospital with wounds sustained on the beach before being brought home by a similar vessel.He renamed Falcon, "Alabama". With an 18 hp Dan marine spirit engine, she was the first motorised vessel on the east coast.
It certainly is the boat that was shown as such in the television documentary "Planes that Changed the World". Whilst still in naval hands in 1942 she was attached to Coastal Defence and served as a training vessel to teach navigation and ship handling to aspiring young Royal Naval cadets at HMS King Alfred.
