Single rowing position with a pair of spruce spoon blade oars.
Gunter rig on varnished mast, stepped through the forward thwart. Single shrouds and a forestay to bronze chainplates. Mainsail by Leitch of Tarbet in good condition.
Drop down dagger board in mahogany centreboard box. Transom hung rudder with drop down blade for shallow water work.
Rope rubbing strake all round.
Galvanised launching trolley and assorted mooring lines.
A very nice little boat in superb condition and absolutely ready to go.
