Vintage Launch

She ihas a 30’ x 9’6” Planing hull with a FE6 Nissan 170hp Engine and 1-1 box,

We are about to fit new engine beds and floors into her as well as a very traditional cabin,
Tthe original roof and Forward Bulkhead were still in her and indicated the helm was on the port side with A hatch in the roof above. bench seats on the starboard side.

The aft end off the cabin was open no door or Bulkhead and the exhaust went up through the roof off the main cabin
Her layout is very similar to the Rowena E R. Lane Built for the Air Force in the 50s It could well be her But I need to find some more Photos to confirm this. the cabin will be the same stile as the Rowena had with a razed deck forward to give head room in the forward cabin.
We are going to fit a Double bed and bunks in the forward cabin. Helm on the starboard side. Kitchen with a bench running across to the Engine cover on the Starboard side and toilet opposite a shower will be fitted in the Aft deck area.
The port side of the engine box will have a fold up side to extend the table with seating on both sides. Or we can fit her out to suite your Requirements.

New engine beds and bulkheads
are being fitted.
