No, I haven't seen a Norfolk Gypsy

I would love to see photos of some in the gallery.

Nice website.

Thumbs up Norfolk Gypsy Pictures

Hi ther Captain!

There are a growing number of pictures in my gallery here

http://www.norfolk-gypsy.com/gypsy_pictures.htm

and some at internal ones

http://www.norfolk-gypsy.com/internal_pictures.htm

She's only a 20' + 5' bowsprit but has great use of space and performs well in light air. Very solid feel, nice heeling movement and very traditional sailboat looks. However, with all the benefits of modern construction and it. Some of our members are cruising the med and channel at the moment.

Regards
Mike


PS there are some more pictures in the http://groups.msn.com/SmallBoats/_homepage.msnw

Looks like a really neat little overnighter or weekender ... or, if you're into it, a week-long pocket cruiser.
We looked seriously at a Bristol Channel Cutter, but backed away from it as not having the room and comfort we were seeking in a long-term liveaboard.
Glad to know about these boats, tho - possibility when we swallow the anchor later on ....

Pilot cutters were never meant for live-aboard, just for quick trips out in possibly bad weather to leave a pilot on an incoming merchie.

Good in bad weather and fast The modern variants are very elegant

There's a 1920's beauty of a pilot cutter now privately owned that parks up in the salterns alongside Lymington.
As pretty as.
Her owner poles or tows her out using his dinghy as she has no engine - but with gaff rig suspect he'd perform under sail.
Great to see modern (albeit smaller) versions still being built.
