16′ Restoration of a 1954 Looe hire-boat

Jack and Alistair are restoring a traditional clinker launch, complete with Stuart Turner engine.

They are doing the restoration on a budget and although the original planking is largely hardwood, they will be restoring planking using larch.  They are also taking this opportunity to alter the internal layout.

We recommend you take a visit to their blog ‘Too fit for firewood’.
