Engine & Fuel :
Purchased in September 06 put back into
the water mar 07 moored on the Shropshire union.
we have tried to keep everything the same with just a little bit more storage.
have around 80 photographs taken from start to finish .have had copies of the
original Norman badges made in vinyl .
Currently moored at Venetian marina Nantwich on the
Shropshire union "scallywag" had her maiden voyage under her new skipper and
crew caught a dishcloth around the prop with in an hour and then got squashed
by one of those steel monsters of the canals. apart from that absolute
fabulous trip not to far Middlewich and back. I actually have around 90 taken
between September and December which is when i stripped scallywag right back
to basics and fully painted her top to bottom as for the vinyl stickers a
local company that makes graphics for my day to day business copied the
original template and then made them cost around £10 not a lot of money and
they look great
scallywag is 34 years old but doesn't look it.
The paint used was a 2 part marine paint from HMG
Manchester from there marine division in Florida and gives a near perfect
finish just by using roller and a brush .if i had the right encapsulation
would have liked to sprayed the paint which would finish like glass.
The inside has its original cushions and vinyl sidings
no plans to change this .
