Wooden Ships Comments on this 10′ rowing dinghy

The history of this very pretty dinghy is not well known.  Believed to have been built in Salcombe by Edgar Cove she has a build number of 1518.  Exceptionally pretty and smart pulling dinghy which has just had a refit where she was stripped to bare wood and coated with at least 5 coats of Epifanes varnish and antifoul below the waterline. Some hood end fastenings in the transom have also been replaced.

She is now in excellent condition and ready to be used.  She does not come with a trailer but could be delivered by the owner.
