    Default help identifying boat.

    Hi all new here and i'm afraid I'm starting with a question.
    I have the opportunity to get this boat for a bit of a steal but I have no idea what it is. As i'm getting it from a business and I'm not local all I know is its probably about 26ft long and I have a picture.
    Any help identifying this would be greatly appreciated as I have a drying mooring and need to know what the keel arrangement is before I travel down for a boat thats potentially unsuitable

    thanks for any help

    I have posted photos occasionally with Dropbox, and there are instructions here -

    Alternatively here is a thread in the Lounge about this subject - a post in here helped me to finally cotton on how to do it.

    And I am still doing something wrong when I try to apply this to your link as nothing happens (as per the link below) ...… however I am sure that somebody more savvy than me will be along in the morning to show us how to do it properly.

    I look forward to seeing the pic once you get that sorted.

    I have to say, though, that if the seller can't provide any more information than 'probably about 26ft', I doubt it's likely to be either 'a steal' or worth the bother of travelling anywhere non-local to view.

    Just Dan, you might get more people seeing your post if you ask your question in the PBO Forum?

    The reason you can't do it is because the URL refers to a file held locally on the OP's machine - that's never going to work.

    If the OP wants to post his image without going through DropBox or whatever, click on the picture frame icon (with "insert Picture" alternate text) above the editing box. That will bring up a dialogue box with two tabs at the top - click on the one marked "from Computer" .Then click on the button at the bottome marked "Select Files", and use a file navigator will pop up - use that to find and select your pictire. Click on the relevant OK buttons, and it should appear.

    That looks like a Falmouth Gypsy built by The Penryn Boat Building Co. probably in the late 60s or 70s … with an added little bowsprit. Warington-Smythe design I think. GRP thickness of industrial strength proportions so would do more damage to the rock if the occasion arose. After all these years though might have a soggy bottom so a surveyor is a must! Early ones were half inch ply. If it's not a Gypsy it's a very close relation!

    Yes - I agree a Gypsy - still being built in at least 1971 - 24ft overall without the bowsprit.

    I think even the GRP ones (or at least some of them) had ply decks and coachroof.

    (No sign of the original poster, though. )

    That is a Gypsy and am not sure if she didnt used to live up Old Mill Creek! Looks like maybe a DHNA seizure ?
