Wooden Ships Comments

Built for the late owners father before WWII, believed to have been built at William Fifes, Fairlie, as a yacht tender.  The late owners father lived near Fifes and was the owner of a shipyard called Scotts.

The dinghy has recently had a thorough professional refit and is in excellent condition both structurally and cosmetically.  There is no trailer with the dinghy, she comes with a pair of galvanised rowlocks but no oars.
