It's believed that this half decker was built by Ernest Woods with a larger rig, and hence bigger keel, for experimentation purposes. Whilst she was otherwise built to the same dimensions as a YBOD/White Boat, she has never been a class boat and it's understood that her current fit out, including decks, bulkheads and seats, etc., do not conform to class rules. Although she has a couple of small areas of rot in her port quarter (for which a professional repair should cost somewhere in the region of £600), she otherwise appears to be in good structural order. A small 2 stroke outboard motor and bracket are available by separate negotiation.
Seriously for sale and sensible offers will be considered.
New photos added January 2019.
