    For the three people who have asked for photos, text me your email address please, because you can't send extra photos through this website!

    Anyway...., Folkboat 'Fern' is about 20 years old, carvel built mahogany over oak with a gorgeous teak deck. She was built at the Southampton Boatbuilding School.

    Stiffish sails, a great 8hp diesel that starts every time, thanks to the solar charger that keeps the battery topped up and kept in the water on the Deben at Martlesham in Suffolk.

    You can find all the specifications here, http://sailboatdata.com/viewrecord.asp?class_id=3299 but if you're looking at a Folkboat then you probably already know that.

    New 1000 gph pump and float switch after the originals retired last week; unused sea-toilet, anchor, warps, fenders, Primus (yes, a classic Scandinavian brass one), everything you need to sail away. Fern also has a road-trailer, included.

    It's the usual thing - I don't have time to sail her. Especially not single-handed, which seems to add hours to everything.

    So, she's looking for a home. Someone who knows that wooden boats need a bit of cosmetic work from time to time, someone who appreciates the stillness and serenity only wooden boats seem to bring. If you're looking for a plastic hose-it-down boat, this isn't it. If you're looking for a boat that will make you smile for the rest of your life, you've probably found her.

    I spent a lot of time last year painting and renovating, then got her back in the water this year. Yes, of course she leaked for the first day. I bought caulking and putty and by the time it arrived she wasn't leaking any more, so you're welcome to that included on me! I also panic bought a new pump and float switch, neither of which she needed by the time they arrive but they are fitted anyway.

    To make her look even better I've jist scrubbed the teak decks so they are clean and light.

    The mooring at Martlesham with showers, electronic access and secure parking is available too, at a very modest £60 a month and I'm including fees for all of October.

    Go classic. You know you want to.
