We are selling Daniel Oakley, see further details and pictures. Since purchasing Atalanta (Small Woolwich Butty) and moving back to the land (in April 2012) so Karen can build up the dog business, we have decided to sell our home and lifestyle of the past 7 years. It is with much regret as Daniel Oakley has been a lovely boat and home, as you will see from the blog postings we have had many adventures around the canal system in that time.
Daniel Oakley is still going strong and has continued to be well looked after. The hull was good when we blacked it last year. The Gardner 2L2 engine is 80 years old this year, has been regularly serviced (every 150-200 hrs) and maintained as required, Danny Williamson did a fine job in restoration. There are a new stove, water pump, calorifer, Eberspacher and battery charger all fitted within the last 2 years. I’ve also been painting the places you never see like under the back counter as well as those you can.
We hope the next owner will have as much pleasure as we have had from owning Daniel Oakley.
