Wooden ships comments on this 30′ Teal One Design
Teal one Design built by E. Williams of Cowes in 1936 to an A.R Luke design. Only 9 were built, and it is believed that this is one only two that remain.
After being stored ashore for many years, she underwent a significant refit in 2004 with new engine, new standing and running rigging, the hull was recaulked along with all the paint and varnish work. She was sold in 2008 and has not been touched since so inevitably needs another thorough overhall.
Pitch pine planking all copper fastened to steam bent oak timbers. External lead ballast keel.
Flush pine deck, caulked, payed and painted. Low coachroof with varnished mahogany coamings and painted top. Varnished forward hatch and toe rails.
Fractional bermudian sloop rig setting 400sq’ sail on a varnished round section spruce mast with double spreaders and jumper struts above. Varnished roller reefing boom, varnished spinnaker pole, alloy jockey pole. Stainless steel standing rigging, new 2004, running backstays on levers.
Mainsail, jib and two spinnakers. New spinnaker from Ratsey in 2003, made using their original Teal sail plan and decorated with a Union Jack. New mainsail cover and all associated running rigging. Pair of bronze cockpit sheet winches from Pascal Atkey of Cowes, probably original.
Yanmar 1GM 10hp diesel engine installed new in 2004, on centreline shaft with fixed 3 blade propellor. Slightly unusual rudder configuration to allow for propellor appature as the original design would obviously have not had an engine.
2 berths and porta potty in a wooden casing.
Bulkhead compass, navigation lights, fishermans anchor, warps and fenders, lifebouy and four wheeled yard trailer.
