Wooden Ships Comments

Built by Harry Feltham and probably designed by him as well, year unknown.

Designed with a raised deck forward of the cockpit, transom stern and spoon bow.

She was rescued from the beach by the present owner, a very experienced and highly skilled shipwright who wanted a project to keep him busy.  She was floated off and put in the yard where a major refit took place which included a number of planks and frames, complete new deck and cockpit, new interior and new rig.

Although not vastly spacious below decks, she has a lovely big and open cockpit ideal for day sailing with enough space below to have a heads, make a cup of tea and spread out for a nap.

A good solid little yacht with a recent survey.
