A very longtime lurker, finally getting up to introduce myself.
Have been involved with two boat restorations so far ...
firstly; a 1909 built rowing lifeboat - the "William Riley of Birmingham and Leamington" - based in Whitby, and often used for fundraising, primarily for the RNLI.
secondly; a Miller Fifer motor-sailer, which was re-launched at Whitehaven just before the festive season in 2015.
Upcoming restorations, will be picking any one of three small boats ... one will be a rowing tender for the Miller, another is a Drascombe Lugger and the last one is a Windermere built power boat.
Have helped restore plenty of other things ...

Best place to look for images of my restorations (and a load of other things) is my account on Ipernity.

This is a link to the folders of albums ...

The rebuild work is mainly in the "Marine Division"
and "Emoyeni" has the more recent images - she's a motor-sailer, but tbh mostly motored.

Enjoy having a look around !

Hi, and welcome to the forum. Lovely to see those pictures of the MF, and what a super restoration. With a serious restoration project like that I would like to see a few "before and during" pictures, but I have little doubt that there will be some amongst your albumns. Geoff.
