Hi Martin, you posted a picture of my boat at Mayhem but didn't know what it is.

Here are some more pictures and an original add, it's the MS Northern Star, I got her about a year ago and restored it from a pretty sorry state over the winter.
She was originally built as a straight runner around 1956, hence the large brass handles. Before I got her she spent at least 25 years on a shelf in the Ship inn in Eyemouth, Berwickshire so some sharp eyed member may have seen her before.
Once IC but now powered by a Volkwagen blower motor on a 12v lead acid she runs for a long time.
The restoration wasn't as easy as I expected as much of the ply had de-laminated but well worth the effort.
