Wooden Ships Comments on this Morgan Giles teak launch
This Morgan Giles designed teak launch was probably originally built as a gentleman’s launch and she has an interesting history. She is reputed to have been used as a port supply vessel in Falmouth during World War 2, and was then bought by the Thompson family in the Scilly Isles and used as an inter-island passenger ferry for 50 odd years until 2005.
Carvel full length teak planking on oak frames. Long keel, probably oak.
The topside planking was raised and the forward cuddy added whilst she was working in the Scillies.
The Ford D10 90hp diesel engine, and the gearbox will have to be removed and replaced. There is a new shaft and 3 blade bronze propeller, not yet fitted.
