Little 'un...

Right you 'orrible lot! Can I ask if anyone has a set of molds for a small (10ft ish or under) boat mono/cat ? Seeing as I'm "boatless" for a while, I thought I might build a little 'un for the nephews.... Ok..Ok... that's just an excuse ..... I want something small that I can shoehorn a decent motor into/onto and see how fast Gav can go up the river here...

albatross

used to be a lot of them on Windermere.
Ford engine, no reverse, spent a lot of time with engine covers up, being fettled, but made a loverly noise when they were on song

Delta did a very similar one - four seat I think, where the albatross was two.

Ebay had one for sale a few months back - came off the royal yacht Brittania.

Looks like you might be going head to head with Ciderdaze who are the currant high bidder by the looks of it.

Tis a 9' 'Apollo', or one of it's splashes, such as 'Seafire', 'CB-9' etc.

Looks like a genuine Apollo to me though, as they were a 20" transom, and the CB-9, Seafire etc were modded to take a 15" by losing some topsides. The topsides on that one look like the full 20" version.

had one myself in 1897

PS. Nice pink shorts you're wearing there big boy!...do you know Mark Pascoe?
