FRANCES is STILL for SALE

Postby Adrian Dale » Tue Sep 12, 2017 7:12 pm

I want to move Frances and my engines on, let me know anyone if you're at all interested, am willing to work a good deal.

Only 6 weeks left before we leave, wish to clear my belongings from the work shed at Beech Cottage.

You can also let my wife Allegra know to biggs.dale@icloud.com, it's the best way to be in touch with her.

Quick update for you guys.

Frances has now been sold to a forum member. After many emails back and forth to A-J and Allegra before they went back home, i/we think we have managed to secure a good home for her. It was touch and go whether or not a new home could be found in time. The alternative could so easily have ended up as a pile of firewood :shock: . Big sighs all round, not least from me!
Some logistical hurdles to overcome with a short stay at a private location over winter, but looking good for its new owner.

Not saying who the new owner is, suffice to say he's a regular on here :P

Great outcome. I was worried the boat was going to be abandoned.

Hope whoever buys it get some salt water in it quickly!

At this present moment in time i'm more concerned with the trailer wheel bearings standing up to a long journey.It's been sat in its present location in the open for nearly 3 years now with little attention to this at all as far as i can make out. Before anything gets moved anywhere i'll have to take a closer look at these before the boat and trailer head out onto the motorway. Last thing i need is collapsed wheel bearings along the m25 north circular!
Won't be long before it gets a salty bath i'm sure.
I'm just glad it's got a new home and that its new owner is one of us.

Changing wheel bearings is a 20 minute job at best. Don't even take the wheel off. Drop the split pin and undo the castellated nut and it will fall apart. :lol:
