A record of the renovation of a
Wooden Drascombe Longboat 'Otter'

12th November 2006 Transferred Otter to trailer and moved her into the garden.

Now to get her onto the trailer, again.


I removed the rollers from the trailer and slide it underneath.

Then I used a trolley jack at the rear and the jockey wheel height at the front to slowly lower the boat, removing wood and concrete blocks as I go.

Back on the trailer ready to go.

I have quite a steep ramp from the road to my drive so I used a block and tackle to haul her up.

Then maneuvered her to the pre-prepaired platform.
