The boats used in the 1974 film of Swallows and Amazons have been acquired by TARS (The Arthur Ransome Society) and will be refurbished and repaired and made available for TARS members to sail.

As no suitable home could be found for them in the Lake District, they will be based in Norfolk where a receptive shipyard has been found to undertake the repair and maintenance.

Now everyone who wondered at the TV adaptions of Coot Club and The Big Six being subtitled Swallows and Amazons Forever will admire the prescience of the producers.
