Wooden Ships Comments on this 12′ Harry Sealey rowing dinghy
A very pretty 12′ clinker rowing dinghy built by Harry Sealey of Teignmouth in 1949. Sealey was involved with the Morgan Giles yard and was a prolific builder of dinghies and small boats used in the local area. There is a detailed history of the dinghy including records of her build and she was owned for many years by Sealey’s daughter.
