It is with a heavy heart that I offer A148, Johara for sale. I moved to the Isle of Harris with the intention of finally sorting her out but a combination of wet weather and other projects has meant that I have not made any progress with her since these photos were taken in 2016. Looking at the for sale notices on this site I see the likelihood of finding a buyer is remote but I must try as she will gradually deteriorate – although not in a shed, she has been stored under cover throughout the year – that is part of the problem having a dry enough and long enough spell of good weather to take the covers off and get some varnish and paint on her. She has a reconditioned engine (Yanmar 10HP) that has done about 8 hours and the trailer was brand new in Aug 2016, she is sound with no sign of any rot anywhere as far as I can see anyway. Most of the old antifouling is removed. The engine cost me £2,000 and the trailer £2,600, so at a price of £3000 the boat is free! She has everything she needs to go sailing again and I also have the sails which were recently professionally cleaned.

David is willing to bring the boat to the mainland (Ullapool).
