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.
Bought by the current owner in 2017, she has had a cosmetic refit with new varnish inside and out, and has been used for light rowing on the Solway Firth and Berwickshire coast.
