Glorious elegant lines. a real go any where boat, which has been much loved by her one owners from new, she could do with a seasons "wash and brush" up, That's about it, Stunning !

and now some rather nice general shots of her being enjoyed in the last 20 ish years!

She was built with Navy Gelcoats, and in 2006 she was lifted, de-rigged and had a full clean down, and re spary in white,

at the same time she had all her standing rigging replaced.

Mrs Skipper Deals with it...

elegant at anchor

keel is Lead ballasted, and has Bulb arrangement to reduce draught, ( it is connected by 20mm Acid resistant bolts, Dividing line between hull and lead keel is Stepped to resist any fore and aft movement, "Shearing"

Nice long skeg from aft of keel gives excellent protection to Propeller, Note the area of rudder ahead of the pivot point so ballancing the rudder effort, so I am sure she was never hard work beating to windward with weight on helm,
