2016.09.22 - Anyone Want a Dinghy?

I have a dingy that is surplus to requirements. Does anyone out there want one? Free to a good home, all you have to do is come and get it.

Currently sitting outside the workshop in all weathers a bit lost and forlorn...

There's a scratch or two on the paintwork but you could put her in the water right now and use her. She comes with oars, rowlocks, mast, sails and rigging and the handbook. She was used by the previous owner to row out to Naiad when she was kept on a swinging mooring down in Cornwall, hence the thick rope attache to the gunwales to act as a fender.

She, is a 7' 7" Sailing Nutshell Pram Dinghy made from a kit and needing a new home. I also have most of the parts for a launching trolley for her. Need some U-bolts and such like to put it all together.

Any takers?
