Steve Bates has just completed the purchase of Poppy. She will be moved to her new home at Bury Point South Wales soon.

There was a discussion recently about the history of Poppy. Steve says he can add to the previous owner information based on the records found on the boat.
Owner 2000-2005 – Dr Paul Dumpleton
Owner 2005-2018 – John Chapman

Steve also said in his email:

An interesting point to note that I commissioned a full survey prior to my purchase and for a 50yr old boat the results were amazing, no signs of osmosis and both the deep and shallow moisture readings were low, the final comments from the surveyor were “After the critical items have been addressed she will be a comfortable, safe and efficient vessel capable of delivering another 50 years of service.”

I’d like to think the survey would say the same thing about our Nic 38!

Welcome Steve, and congratulations on your new purchase.

Marilyn, moderator
