Other information:
Victorian Gaff cutter, built by Fields of Itchen Ferry in 1898 to a design by J.S. Herlyer.

Major rebuild at Trouts of Topsham between 1991 and 1997.

New planking,, heavier frames and new deck.

LOA= 40 foot

Ashore at Mlyor in Cornwall

At present the hull has been stripped back and linseed
oiled. The majority of the caulking is good, a few places will need redoing. The aft port sheerstrake and cover board have been removed and need to be replaced. Once these jobs are complete she will be ready for painting and be watertight.

She was originally on the market for £14,000 but we are keen to sell as we are renovating our house and sadly can’t find the time for her. We are looking for offers in excess of £10,000.
