Hey John!
An old boyfriend of mine bought a 30 foot ferro-cement hull back in the 1970s, somewhere on the south coast of England and had it hauled up to a boatyard in Edinburgh, where he proceeded to fit it out. Hard to imagine now, but I helped him create a floor out of -- was it iroko? and mahogany. I wonder what happened to that vessel. I heard that he did launch it and it did float.

Glad to see this and will check back often. Here is the baby Brooklyn Collection blog, with lots of old stuff in it not unlike yours:
