RESTORATION 

  After several years of poor care and maintenance,  Peggotty found new ownership  and was bought for a pound by joint owners Mr & Mrs Moore and Mr & Mrs Leveck.  She was floated up to our yard in Chertsey from Teddington patched with bin bags, plywood, sealant and loaded with car batteries and bilge pumps. Peggotty's restoration was a monumental  and required good old fashioned boatbuilding .
