no it wasnt mine. was in belfast sat afternoon. down the ramp comes a really nice looking wooden boat pretty soon a hose is over the side then the guy that hauled it is backing the trailer in as fast as he can. then someone is running for a pump. they got it back on the trailer. this morning i was talking to the guy at the fuel dock. he says it took on a lot of water and last yr it took on enought to cover the motors. now before you say ah the poor guy and his hard luck. the boat looks like the bunker&ellis for sale on yacht world for.............475k in the ad it says location belfast me

usually you have to keep the wood boats in a sling for a while, long enough to get the wood to swell where the pumps can keep up untill completely swelled.

Exactly. If that boat is single planked It should of been left to soak before launching.
