More wooden boats

Most of these photos were taken in 2011 and 2012; the last lot are from as long ago as October 2010. In most cases I don’t know the type/builder of the boat or its name; I would welcome more information.

Béal na Bláth

I have a photo on this page of this boat looking a little the worse for wear. But in November 2011 Donal Flynn had it moved to the Royal for restoration.

This looks like a seagoing fishing boat. “Dr M Cox” was written on it

Carrick-on-Shannon

I already have a photo of Lady Inez, but you can’t have too much of a good thing.

Carrick-on-Suir

More people in Ireland should have what the Dutch call sloeps: it isn’t always necessary to have a cruiser, but you don’t have to slum it either. How about something gorgeous like this?

  1. I believe the timber sailing boat at Richmond harbour belongs to the folk in the ivy covered house next to where it’s moored.

  2. Thanks, Joe. bjg

  3. Any information on the final cruiser? Where is she moored and what is her name?

  4. Killinure, but no idea of ID. Might ask Sven …. bjg

  5. I have found some photographs of the ‘Argent Breach’ taken at Hodson’s Bay in 2004, a year or so before she was lost on Lough Ree and would be happy to share.
