I recently bought what I believe is a Norman 22, in terrible condition.  The whole interior was rotten, the hull had a huge hole in it and there was no floor.
I am currently in the process of renovating the boat, hopefully back to it's former glory.  Although I will be modernising it somewhat along the way.
I would like to post some before, during and after pictures of the boat on your site, as I think some of your members would enjoy them. The boat currently looks terrible as I am still in the early stages of restoration.  In addition the previous owner has changed the location and style of the windows, so it's not immediately obvious as a Norman 22.  It will look even less like a Norman when I have finished as I intend to change the design of the stern and manufacture a solid roof for the cockpit area.  The boat will mostly be used for cruising the Norfolk Broads with my young family.  We currently also have a Mayland cabin Cruiser, a Searay 21 Bowrider with a 400hp Chevy v8 and a diving Rib, so you could say we like boats!


I finally managed to put it on the water yesterday - which by coincidence was my 40th birthday!
I've attached a few pics for your interest, and whilst there's still some finishing work to be done, I hope you'll agree that it's a million miles from the mess I started with.  I would like to send several photos for your website, which show a detailed history of each stage of the rebuild
I have done all the work myself, including building the top roof section and outboard platform, and my father made the canopy.  It is moored at Brundall Bay Marina, on the Norfolk Broads, and I'm really looking forward to some decent weather to have my first overnight stay.
