Wooden Ships Comments on this Looe Lugger

This boat has had only 4 owners in her lifetime.    She worked pilchard drifting and long-lining out of Mevagissey until 1976 and was then bought by a Frenchman for cruising.  He sold her to the present owners (professional shipwright) in 2005 who gave her a big refit and rebuild and have since cruised her extensively. They have cruised the French coasts and the Med.
