Wooden Ships Comments on this clinker launch

Nick Smith is an experienced builder of wooden launches, based in Christchurch, Hampshire.  He built this launch for the owner and she was launched in 2010.   She is varnished throughout and is in immaculate, as new condition.   A very reluctant sale due to ill health, she has only been used twice and is stored under cover.
