Help with ship identity
« on: April 09, 2013, 06:22:34 PM »

I was contacted the other day asking with help to identify a ship. The ladies husband passed away some time ago and she has a ship she wants to sell to someone who will restore it to it's former glory. As you will see it has gathered a substantial amount of dust but does look a good ship.
Identity of the boat please if you know who made it and what it is.
If anyone would be interested in it contact me and I will put you in touch with the lady concerned.
Thanks guys,

Rau IX   whaler probably Graupner.  Bit like smoking, anti social whale hunter.
