Lovely refurbished tradiditional sailing dinghy. This boat has been refurbished over a number of months. The planking is of pitch pine and although the boat is in almost perfect condition she must have been built when pitch pine was plentyfull. It is almost impossible to get nowadays. The boat has a drop keel and a drop rudder. She has a mast and a sail (bermudan) and a boom. She has oars and a bilge pump and an anchor. We sailed her once and were very impressed however due to our age and unfirmity, sadly the boat must go to someone who can make good use of it. The trailor has just had new bearings and new tyres and the boat is easy to tow with this trailor.

|Length over all:||13' 6"|

The vessel was built to a very high standard and appears to be hardly used. It must have been dry stored for many years. The boat is in almost new condition and been refurbished where ever needed. As the boat has been built with top quality pitch pine and looked after there is no rot whatsoever despite the vessel being built probably in the 1930's
The sail is a bermudan sail and mounted well forward so there is no need for a jib. The sail is in reasonable condition as is the mast and boom
