Wooden Ships Comments on this west country Bermudan sloop
A relatively rare A. H Watty designed boat, a typical West Country design. She has cruised extensively over the years in the West country and cross-channel. In 1987 she was the overall winner of the Helford – L’Aberwrach race, out of 63 starters. She is an excellent sea boat, and spacious for her length. The present owner has owned her for 17 yrs and in that time has replaced the garboards, steamed in new frames and re-caulked her completely. The keel bolts have been replaced, standing rigging renewed and the decks sheathed.
