    A darling little (and she is small for her size) plywood schooner for sale on Trade Me, crying out for a junk rig (and a loving owner).  A glass over ply Swampscott dory, with heaps of character, like a sea going UK narrow boat!

    That's very pretty Annie but ...........its half way around the world.

    In the same vein this on eBay in the UK looks really nice but some what more money.

    Ah, those "Romilly" designs are lovely boats.  One has to wonder at the seller's choice of photos, however: it never ceases to astonish me how people present their boats for sale.  The impression I gained was of a cramped and cluttered interior dominated by a large and smelly diesel engine!

    Well, Roger, there was a reason why I said 'calling all Kiwis'.  It would be nice to see such a quirky wee boat joining in our junkets!
