Tinker Traveller
£1400 o.n.o.
Hunstanton, Norfolk.
(ad placed 11/05/2014)
Tinker Traveller, sail no 6933, bought new in 2000.  Comes with launching trolley, Yamaha 'Malta' 3.3hp 2-stroke outboard and Yamaha M-20 'E-Drive' electric outboard.  Jamming cleats and a kicking strap fitted from new.

It has had light use for day-sailing and motoring, and occasionally on the sea so it has a masthead buoyancy bag to prevent it inverting after a capsize in deep water, a compass and a small anchor.

The petrol engine has only been run for a few minutes at a time in a water-bath for the last few years so probably needs a service).  It needed a new water-pump impeller after about 50 hours running, but has otherwise been reliable.

The boat has never been damaged or repaired.

Price £1400 o.n.o. if buyer collects.
