Buster was purchased 4 years ago. Her shipwright owner “set too” on replacing the deckhouse and opening up the accommodation below.
Due to ill health he has had to abandon his project, everything has been left in situ…
Built by Watt & Sons, Banff  Scotland  in 1964.  A robust wooden carvel planked hull and decks, sheathed and painted.

She has been used for pot fishing, offering accommodation below and a large deck house to shelter from the worst of the elements.

A Gardner 4LW diesel engine (1962)  is installed aft and under the wheel house. She would make a great little home afloat.

She certainly requires some skills in carpentry, in order to make the project a viable one.
