    Would be interested in any info on your Cariad, we have a 1928 21' Cyclone.

Mine started first touch and never faltered . (gravity fuel system) . You will need a prop anode as the engine one is a bit small. Im restoring a 17ft Harrison Butler built in 1938 by Mashfords . called Cariad.

    Perhaps let the Harrison Butler owners assoc know of her. She isn't on their list of boats.

    By the by, this Harrison Butler is in a yard I know, a stones throw away from Mashfords where she was built.
    Good history and, from a superficial look, she seems sound.

    That has been on the market for some time listed with Wooden Ships.

    Was a time when boats of that pedigree were being snapped up as soon as they hit the market, but times have changed and they seem to have gone out of fashion.

    Yes it started off at c £15,000. This owner may have hoped to turn a little profit on it, not an easy thing to do just now.
