One of my favourite books is Ramlin Rose, the Boatwoman’s Story, by Sheila Stewart. In the early 1990’s the author interviewed whatever boatwomen she could find in the Banbury area; women who were born and bred on horse-drawn boats. She then compiled these real life experiences into the life story of a fictional character ‘Rose Ramlin’.
Boatshed Dartmouth are delighted to offer for sale a Halmatic 30. First launched in 1979 the Halmatic 30 shares the same timeless seagoing qualities of the Nicholson 31. She is a heavy displacement cruiser with a high ballast ratio. In total over 200 were built. This Halmatic 30 has been in the same ownership since new. Unusually therefore I have on file much of the original documentation. She is now in need of a new owner to breath new life into her but once she has been updated she should be good for many years to come. Appointments to view can be booked in advance 6-days a week directly with Paul Singer your Boatshed Dartmouth broker.

At Waterline Boats / Boatshed Seattle we watch internet traffic as a key indicator, and have highly sophisticated tools to assess traffic. One of our most frequently viewed vessels is this lovely 46 foot wooden ketch built in 1986 in Oswego, Oregon. She was displayed in August at the Vancouver Wooden Boat Festival and the Port Townsend Wooden Boat Festival where she was a definite attention-getter.
Should a vessel sink or catch fire you could face the reality of having to get into a life-raft. Liferafts are often the last resort for survival in such circumstances. Liferafts are small, cramped and conditions inside are cold, wet and uncomfortable.
