Alan,

I wasn't looking for a Seamaster 27 at all, I was in the process of buying a Colvic Traveller, however the survey highlighted several major problems with the boat, the vendor would not reduce his asking price so I walked away. When I say major problems, she needed a NEW diesel engine and a NEW sterndrive (est 6,500).

I actually went to look at a Seamaster 813 which was in a very poor state, however a few berths away on the marina was a Seamaster 27 which was just going up for sale that day, I viewed and placed a deposit on her there and then. In between rejecting the Colvic and buying the boat I have now, I looked at two 27's and two 813's. They were all pretty poor to be honest, the reason I moved so fast on the one I bought was that compared to the other boats I had viewed she was obviously very well-cared for, as original as possible, the engine looked and sounded good, the bilges were dry and there was a genuine reason for sale. I also managed to speak to the owner of the boat next-door-but-one and he told me she had been looked after very well.

The only downside is that she has spent all her life on the canal so I am now getting her equipped to be moved either to a lake or on the coast, hence the need for a bow roller.

All the boats I viewed have now been sold, it would be unfair to make reference to their names as their new owners may have joined the Seamaster Club.

Ian.
