Snapdragon back from the dead

Yesterday I spent the day doing some filming for Practical Boat Owner = www.pbo.co.uk.  I did some writing for them back in the 80’s and here I am again – working for them.

The magazine has bought an old Snapdragon 23 for £500 – it has been mouldering in a corner of a yard by a chicken farm for 20 years

A good one has just come up on ebay and it looks like this

 

After filming an interview about collision regulations Ben Meakins, the features editor at PBO took me to see the boat – it is a stripped out hull that is going to take a massive a mount of effort to put into the sort of shape that the ebay boat is in
