    Default Coronation Street.

    My wife has alerted me to a storyline in this soap, where a 'Boat' has appeared on the street. Having looked at it last night, the boat appears to be a fairly early version of an Folkboat, carvel with an original 'low cabin'.
    I searched for a reference online, and it's a bad outcome.
    Naff name on the boat 'Lost Buoy'...; No boat deserves all of this.

    From the little I see of it, Peter is planning to sail it across the Atlantic to the Caribbean. A little far fetched, methinks.

    I watched the first episode of Coronation Street and have never watched it since but if it's going to feature a Folkboat I might resume watching it.

    There was an episode in Whitehaven a while ago, and some years ago, someone disappeared off a small yacht on a lake, IIRC. Quite a boatybkind of soap, if you stick with it

    Watching a re-run of a Poirot a few weeks back watched as a lady in a nice clinker built dinghy started her Seagull engine with ease and proceded to motor away, next shot with her further out to sea the Seagull had miraculously turned into a Suzuki or similar.
    On the Corrie Folkboat, how many noticed in the Wednesday 30th Jan’ episode, in a long shot the antifoul was complete from stem to stern but in the next close up shot all the antifoul had disapeared from around the bow leaving bare woodwork?

    That's right, and a chap got knocked down by a tram on the front at Blackpool.

    How the years fly on.

    Wouldn’t be the first Folkboat across the Atlantic. My old Invicta 26 Folkboat derivative didn’t do the whole crossing but has done the Azores twice in it’s 50 years life.
