Montgomery - the stern

Montgomery's rear end
August 2013

The stern of The Jam Butty is a 20 year old reproduction josher butty. The lines are sweet and graceful and the water will swim found it beautifully leading to a substantial elum which will need a bit of TLC before she floats again.

I am told that there was a plan to motorise the butty in one of its incarnations, and there are some fittings in place which will have to be removed.

There has been a lot of love and attention poured out on this craft and as far as possible I will restore rather than renew. We will certainly keep the name on the stern.
