Builder Boatcraft R Spocton
Hi all I’m doin a bit of research regarding 3387. I have a copy of the measurement certificate and I’m trying to identify the builder. Does anybody know who boatworks R Spocton is Thanks Tim Oh and is an NSM2. 1987.
Robert Spolton was a part time builder based in Newark, Notts. Turned out some lovely boats.
Hi jez, Yes I picked her up for an absolute bargain price on Ebay. I’ve had to scarf in some sycamore on the gunwale and I’ve stripped the decks back this winter. New two pack going on this week. That and some new spinnaker poles and she’s as good as new, I’m really happy with her and looking forward to some nice racing. It’s interesting tracing back her life, some more of the pieces fall into place. Also rather random but she was built in 1986 but not measure till 1997. No idea why yet.
Hi Tim, Yes, I did buy her from Colin. Not sure who had her originally. I think you might find she was remeasured in 1997 or just wasn’t registered with the RYA for a while.
Original owner was A. MacGoldrick (a clue to the name!) a member of Bala SC. He later moved south but no club listed.
