Wooden Ships Comments on this Percy Dalton Tosher

Built in Porthleven, Cornwall in 1971 by a local shipwright as his own boat.

Found on the beach in St Just in the late 1980’s she underwent a decade long rebuild, finally being launched in March 1993.  She then won first prize in the Amateur Boatbuilding competition at the Wooden Boat Show in London of that year, a testament to the quality of the rebuild work carried out by her owner over the previous 10 years.

After being neglected once again and left ashore for 3 years, the current owner bought the boat from the Isle of Wight in 2020 and carried out a further diligent refit with the help of a professional shipwright, replacing the transom, refurbishing the deck, replacing the rigging and ensuring the boat is absolutely sound.

This is a very pretty little boat with plenty of history that has had 2 significant periods of refit work leaving her in apparently very good structural and cosmetic condition.
