Wooden Ships Comments on this 12′ Clinker Rowing Dinghy
Built by G&A Waddell Boatbuilders of Sandbank, Argyll. Probably built in the 1950’s or 1960’s, exact date unknown. The Waddell brothers had a yard building smaller boats and ran a ferry service across the mouth of the Loch, they evidently had an eye for a pretty boat with the nice sheer line, slight tumblehome on the transom and elegant proportions of this dinghy.
The current owner is based in Argyll where, following a professional overhaul by Crinan Boatyard and the addition of a new Yamaha long shaft 2.5 hp outboard engine, “Jove 11” has been used for exploring inshore in the sea around Crinan and fishing expeditions along the coast.
