These photos come from a viewing of the items being auctioned at Turk’s Boatyard at Chatham on Saturday. Julie and I went over in the company of a clutch of other boating enthusiasts, and a pleasant, sociable and productive time we had, as you may gather from Chris Partridge’s post about the outing at his Rowing for Pleasure weblog.
Jolly outing though it was, however, I was a little saddened and surprised by how few other people were looking at the lots on Saturday. Hi Gavin, you have no idea how frustrating it is to be here when all that lovely woodwork is over there. There seems to be very healthy support for most of the worthwhile boats (still a couple of hours to go) – with the possible exception of the Baden-Powell canoe which has to be a real bargain if nobody bids it up from its current £400!

Classic Sailor is a new magazine about traditional and classic boats from ex-Classic Boat editor Dan Houston and colleagues that promises rather more coverage of the traditional craft around our coast.

Our Faversham-based friend Alan Thorne can help with boatbuilding projects - constructing to plans in very tidy stitch-and-glue or more traditional techniques.


If this was close to indicating the level of interest in the auction, I thought, the sad end to all this could be that a number of interesting, even historic, craft will be disposed of in some other way, possibly even burned for all I know. I tried to get a few people interested in bidding for a boat or two with a view to a container load but nothing happening.
