Wooden ships comments on this McNulty Longstone sailing dinghy
Built in the early 1980’s from mahogany clinker planking on steam bent oak timbers, all copper rivet fastened in the traditional way. Full length stringer riveted right through for strength. Hull is varnished inside and out.
Heavy sheerstrake plank with capping rail and rubbing strake to stiffen the hull. U-shaped thwarts in the aft with a single centre thwart. Scrubbed teak slatted floor boards.
Pivoted centreplate in a mahogany casing, operated with a block and tackle system running forward.
Mahogany rudder with choice of long or short tiller.
Standing lug rig on an unstayed varnished pine mast with varnished pine boom and yard.
Tan terelyne sail with 3:1 block and tackle mainsheet.
Comes with a custom made SBS galvanised combination road trailer with piggy back launching trolley. Purchased by the present owners in 1985 and has been dry sailed and stored undercover ever since. Varnished every year as necessary.
Very tidy dinghy in smart condition ready to go drive away and sail. A cheap and fun way to get out on the water! Original McNulty Brochure from 1987.
