Baden Pascoe sent me the photos above of the 1937 WG Lowe built Moata, owned by Fin Horder, who is doing some nice work on her. Baden commented that its nice to see a classic work boat still doing her stuff and being understood.
Extra cool to see the problem solved by not nailing ply over her decks.
Moata made a cameo appearance on WW back in April, click the link below to see a great b/w photo of her c.1960 on the Clevedon River. https://waitematawoodys.com/2018/04/04/moata/
Any One Heard of ‘France Craft’, or better still own one?
