Wooden Ships Comments on this Paul Gartside Skylark
Professionally built in 2018 to the Paul Gartside Skylark design. A pretty lug rigged dinghy, complete with trailer and cover, perfect for messing about on the water.
In superb condition, she has been used only a handful of times and stored undercover since new.
She was built on the Boat Building training course at Lyme Regis and has been finished to a high standard as would be expected.
Smart condition, on her trailer and ready to tow away for fun afloat this summer.
