Looking for a Sounds Floating Bach or a Lake Boat?



Looking for a Sounds Floating Bach or a Lake Boat?

Today’s woody lives in the Marlborough Sounds but could equally be a perfect North Island lake boat. She measures 24’6″ & is constructed with kauri carvel hull, with glass on ply cabin & deck.
Power comes from a 3QM Yanmar 30hp diesel & as you can see in the photos had been fitted out to a very high standard.
Asking price is $9.5k, that is not a lot of $$ for a woody that is presented in the condition this one is 😉

Its hard to read her name but Ian McDonald who tip me off on the trademe listing feels it could be either Scuffy or Scuppy – any woodys able to ID the boat & supply more details on her?

  1. Scuffy. I knew the boat in Nelson in the mid 1980s when Tim Barraud, a local vet restored her. I’m not sure of her history prior. When Tim build the coach roof and wheelhouse, with a long cockpit. The new (and I think ugly) roof aft spoils her lines. She was a sweet wee boat.

    She has a claim to fame, as she was the boat featured in the book ‘Herbert the Brave Sea Dog’, by Robyn Belton. A lovely story. I lent my binoculars to the search, and I well remember the celebration when Herbert was found. The story is here: http://www.stuff.co.nz/nelson-mail/news/667390/Brave-dog-Herbert-lives-again-in-book.
