Very tempting, what would be really good is to take the lines off and record them for the club before they're sold

This is only half the story.
We will be keeping four of our historic clinker boats. Three are identical or better than these and the fourth is little Martin the single skiff, so we won't be losing the lines. We are having some work done on those we are keeping to bring them up to scratch and may be looking to build a couple of modern clinker ply skiffs to supplement the fleet.
Its all happening down at the Ancient & Vulnerable.
As they say watch this space.

That's great to hear, so many clubs are selling off lovely old boats in favour of more modern or easy to maintain craft.
