The last 18 months in the weather has not been kind to the boat. Here’s a suite of pictures taken 15/7/2022.
The boat is Thira. The previous rego was GT41. It is a tilting tandem trailer that is not registered but I have obtained a VIN for a home-made trailer pre dating 1988. Vic roads inform me that it does not require compliance labels fixed to it but to register it a weigh bridge weight certificate is needed. The wiring and the lights on the trailer were renewed two years ago.
There is a 10hp 4 stroke Honda that was serviced and carbie kit done when the trailer was rewired. It has not been started and in storage since then.
The boat was dry inside but clearly the varnish has deteriorated markedly. The Timber (other than the transom and as seen in photos) seems okay.
There are a number of sails that to me seem in okay condition. When I connected a battery about 18 months ago the electrics and lights were working.
I am moving to South Australia and would rather sell it than tow it.
TS18 Hartbeat – Free to good home
My name is Geoff Braithwaite. I was a member 20 years ago and the owner of Hartbeat. She is in Carrum downs.
Trailer and boat registration has expired. If you know of someone who wants a project I want it removed. I am now living in Tasmania. She is in fairly good condition on a gal single axle trailer. My health and age is catching up on me but I would like my boat to bring joy to more people.
