KEEL TYPE: Long shallow fin

COLOUR: White with varnished superstructure

INTERIOR: 3 berths

ENGINE: 6 hp Vire petrol engine

RIG TYPE: Gunter Sloop


SAILS: Slab-reefed red main and Wykeham-Martin roller reefed jib, plus additional white jib

EQUIPMENT: Internal: The boat has a pleasant cockpit with seating/lockers to either side. One of these, larger than the rest, contains the cooker (in need of replacement) and another, the engine. Going into the cabin, there is a single settee berth to either side and space for an occasional third berth athwartships. She has a lifting roof, which provides a maximum 5' 6" headroom. She is fitted with navigation lights and comes complete with ropes, fenders and mudweights.

REMARKS: It is understood the boat has recently had work carried out to satisfy the requirements of an insurance survey. The owner can provide details of her history if required (e.g.: listed in Blake's catalogue of 1911 as "Water Rat"). About 45' new planking installed winter 2001 and hull repainted/re-antifouled.

OUR OPINION: A pretty, but fairly basic, boat. She would benefit from some tidying - believed only cosmetic - inside.
