EVE, currently moored on The River Medway in Kent.
Eve is the front section of an iron riveted ‘Joey’ type boat constructed in the 1800’s (est. 1850). She was converted by the previous owner with the addition of a steel stern and cabin structure. She was last out of the water in 2015 and was blacked with bitumen. Since I purchased Eve in 2013 I have had the windows reconditioned, fitted a radio CD player, digital television aerial, 2 x USB sockets and a Sterling hi-speed battery charger.
