Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming, "WOW, What a Ride!"

 Hi Tom, our little Jem was at some time called 'Ferry Man' found that under a few coats of paint, Think we are going to call it 'Rhumb Tub' though the owner's are Jeff and Ruth, and the location is North Shropshire. 
 The Caracruiser that was for sale at Brecon in the spring was called Llewetto
and the owners name is/was Mr Ottewell, yes Llewetto spelt backwards.

Hi,
I've had a look at the pictures I took of the caracruiser thats for sale on the Oxford and it's called Miss Ellie, owner unknown. I Also spoke to someone at the local Royal Enfield owners club who turns out to own a Caracruiser, I don't know his name or the boats name, but if he's at this months meeting I'll find out. It might be for sale as well because he did say he'd bought a bigger boat.
Cheers, Andy(Mole).

Hi , Spotted a Caracruiser today at Newenden , Kent , it was on the bank of the River Rother looks like its being rebuilt , Its name is " Nick Nack ",
  It could be the same one as " Nik Nak " which we looked at for sale in Tenderden which is about 5 to 6 miles from Newenden ,
  But my wife and i are both sure there are spelt differantly , we left a note about this website site so we might get a reply sometime ?

2) had message from Chris , its the same boat and its name is ' Nick Nack '
but still do not who owns it !

Hello, sorry I've been quiet for a while, it's my busy time of year. Further to my last message with the e-mail address, the museum is in lower Sondon (or something similar) in Bedfordshire, and is a very interesting place.It's also owned by the chap who designed the Caracruiser, so if there are any questions, he should know the answers.
As I haven't as yet heard back from him, Mole is still up for grabs. So if anybody wants a Caracruiser, ready to go for this season, you know where to find one.

Hi just to say Nick Nack is at the moment (till refitted) living in Dudley and owned by stuart and sarah. Once refitted Nick Nack will live in Cambridgeshire - hopefully in the Huntingdon area.
