To Restore 25" Narrow boat to original condition

by John Mardon in Clacton-on-Sea, England, United Kingdom

I started major works just before the first Covid-19 shut down which has now caused financial problem to complete

My aim is to restore the boat back to original condition, then move it to the Canal in Camden London.

Then offer free boat trips for Children (with parents or carer) who suffer with autism so they can have a experience of a calm day on the water

My wife suffers with mental health issues and was funded this year to go into a treatment center this has saved her life, therefore I would like to give back to my local community.

The money raised is to complete the following:

Steel fabrication on Hull, creating safety rails to the rear deck, Painting the whole exterior inc blacking the hull

Re-fit the whole interior area to currant regulations inc gas safety & boat safety certificate

Life Jackets various sizes, Life buoy

Create a ramp side access to the rear deck allowing  Wheel chair access inc safety straps 

Got an idea like this?
