wooden ships comments on this Motor launch project
Motor launch project hull. Built in Salcombe by Dornom and Sons in 1939
Partly finished refit.
Several planks replaced, new false keel, new laminated ring frame, new engine beds, decks replaced in plywood and epoxy sheathed with new deck beams and knees, transom replaced with new stern knee plus more.
Receipts for all work.
Well known boat in the area, thought originally to have been a tender to a large yacht.
The majority of the structural work has been completed giving the next owner a sound tight hull to fit out. She will make an excellent launch for river exploration, coastal hopping and fishing trips, full enough in the bilge to be stable and seaworthy but with a fine entry and lovely run aft to allow her to slip along at good speed.
