Wooden Ships Comments on this Salmon Netting Rowing Boat
Built in Padstow in 1977 as a Salmon net boat. She has been in same family her entire life, used for Salmon fishing on the Camel Estuary in Cornwall until 2017 when she was laid up.
A substantially built boat with good beam and plenty of buoyancy, wide in the stern which stops her sitting low in the water when being sculled.
Generally a sound boat, well built and with a nice history, she will need a little tidying but would make a lovely family boat.
