I hope she's a better sea boat than the Avalon FR was Kevin ( and that the net drum has a decent motor on it , the Avalon's one couldn't pull the skin off warm rice pudding !! ). Amazing to think this class of boats was built using recycled steel from an old gas monitor , rebuilt engines out of lorries , second hand winches/net drums and , on the Avalon , no insulation in the fish room !!!

Still going Mike as far as I know. The new owners put a metal plate out from the bow ( to help directional control ) , better rudder too. I think she's mainly scallop fishing now
