Wooden Ships Comments on this Yachting World 15 sailing dinghy
Built by Trummy Hutton of Burntisland, Fife just after WW2 and she was one of the founding boats of the Burntisland Sailing Club and always thought of as their No.1 boat. She is a Yachting World 15 design and one of a pair built by Hutton, although this was always known to be the better boat.
Her history has been very well documented and she was raced regularly in Scotland before being sold to Blackpool where she was owned by a family for many years who sailed her a lot including around the western Isles of Scotland. After that she had a refit with David Moss Boat Builders who fitted her current gunter rig and repaired the seam around the base of the centreboard box.
In current ownership she had a complete professional refit by Patterson Boatworks in Hawkshead and is now in excellent condition, on an as new trailer and looking very smart.
