Welcome to the world of Classic boating. The Fenn and Wood Meteor Mk 1 you have bought is one of the desirable inboards to own with its early classic lines and all wood construction.
we have a number of specialists in the club for this particular marque and may I suggest if you are not already a member then you would benefit greatly in joining us.
I have owned one of these in the past and would help you with any information you required and I am also Membership Secretary so have an interest in explaining all that we can offer you in the way of help and assistance.
As you can imagine there are a number of owners of this type of boat so give me a call as there may be someone living near you that you could speak with.
My name is Keith Burgess 01202 870769
