All but the name

Yes - three years later - Ben has finished his barge (all but the name).  A sensible time-scale for this renovation would have been 10 years, not 3!!  Everything has a price!  BUT .................. when our friend Dave Smith first saw this he said it was derelict ........ not now!!


  1. Hi, could you tell me if Ben has a blog, would love to see the interior, its a gorgeous boat!
    Thanks. Debbie.

  2. Thanks for the comment, Debbie. Yes it is lovely .... now!! You should have seen it when it arrived in this country 3 years ago - a rusty old bucket!!
    Ben doesn't have a blog site - he doesn't even bother to read ours!! (parents!) However, I do believe he has put pictures on Facebook. If you request friendship I will let him know the circumstances but ......... he's not that great with computers!
    OR - if you send us your e-mail address (we are on Facebook too) we could send you some internal pictures. If you think the outside looks good, you should see the inside!!!!!!!

  3. Hi, thank you so much for your lovely reply, my email addy,
    Its such a shame Ben didn't do a blog about the refit I am sure he would have had many followers!
    You all must be really proud of the finished boat, its fab! Debbie.
