Before Restoration

The inside on buying the boat, most of the interior was made up of chip board.
The stern
The bows, you can also see the butch trailer that is made up of two
lorry axles, one of which is welded up to prevent it turning 
Before I restored the Mistley Prawn it was in a poor state. It also was missing some vital parts such as rigging, rudder, sails, engine and maybe even the ability to float. I managed to find my boat in a local boatyard and I paid £160 for it including the trailer. However this was to big a chance to miss as it for filled my two most important categories: It had decent accommodation and it drew only 18 inches, ( it has triple keels)
