Yes! So pretty that I'd like a picture of it on the bulkhead inside my low maintenance fiberglass boat that has no teak or brightwork outside.

Re: Me want it.

There has always been a certain magic about these boats. They have a definite aura...

Re: Me want it.

Suijin,

If that one makes your heart go pitter patter, i think you'd really enjoy the My State Wooden Boat Festival in Tasmania. So many beautiful, restored oldies, and delightful on the sail by, too. Next WBF will be in February 2 yrs. hence. It is pretty popular, so if you want to do it, book well in advance. PM me if you'd like to hear more.

Ann

Re: Me want it.

Also my fantasy boat.
www.boatdreams.co.uk has some more information.

The nautical books of HW Tillman describe the sailing abilities of these boats very well.
