The Tartan Tock is not a boat I ever came across on our side of the pond, so I had a read about it here:
The Tartan TOCK
We ran into Yankee and Irving Johnson in the spring of 1970, in the volcanic port of Ischia, off the west coast
. A very fine boat it was too and the first time I came across a rope anchor
line mounted on a drum on deck
What a great looking boat she is, I am sure you would love to look after her.
I am envious now, as I always wanted a Trewes Privateer or small Jongert and she is very similar. I never had the sort of money
for one of those and never will.
I see she shares Yankee's shallow draft
, so she could pass through the European canal system if you ever get over here.
I do hope you manage to get her.
