Hi eryone,
Due to the ageing process I have decided to pass on the restoration project of the Maurice Griffiths designed Yawl "Veterata". This is a very worthwhile project with most of the hard work already done. It comes with a mass of gear including sails, running rigging, standing rigging, bronze fittings including oval portholes. Taylor parrafin stoves and cooker( gimbled). The booms and mizzen mast have been rebuilt but the main mast is in need of serious repairs. I intend to offer it for auction on Ebay around the beginning of September. There will be no reserve but a starting bid of £2500 to cover the value of the lead keel and bronze fitting. I do not want someone buying it to simply scrap it for the metal.
It is laid up ashore under cover in the Maidenhead , Berks area. Arrangements to view can be made by phoning me on my mobile 07926362938 after the 24th August. I am currently in Germany. Up until that date I can be contacted by email
