Restoring 1950 Fishing Boat

I live on a 1950 Danish fishing Boat converted to a houseboat.
To be able to maintain and restore my boat as close to original as possible I need to find boat yards and barkers from whom I can obtain items of equipment and chandlery
Dose any one know of any places I can go to get what I need?

I restored a 1956 Mahogany Cruiser a few years back and was able to find some replacement (of original equipment) lights and cleats from Perko through a local marine dealer. They did not actively market some of the items but were able to get them and were very helpful. I don't know if a Danish builder of the period would use Perko lights and cleats.

Don't know their correct website addresses, but these will all hit for you.

I see you are located in Lowestoft Suffolk UK.
You don't mention if you are able to move your boat? If you are, how about taken it up into the Yare or Bure Rivers via Great Yarmouth. Depending on the bridges you should be able to find a spot where you can tie up - while you visit Wroxham where there are good supplies.
