Rosie III is a 1979 1/2 ton class racer by legendary designer Ron Holland. I found her having been completely stripped out, subsequently redesigned the cabins and completed the refit - all works with the exception of the rigging, canvas work and new cushions. See the progress from start to finish in the album.
Gnu is a 1958 gunter rigged Foil dinghy that had been dry stored since the year of her build when a car damaged her transom. Other than the transom, and a repair to the coaming, the wood was all in good condition was were the original fittings and sails which all came back to life looking like new. Check out the mirror like varnished finish. A revolutionary design involving stressed plywood, versus clinker construction, the National Maritime museum wish to photograph her in the water this summer as she is the last survivor of her class.
Piccolo is an international 6m Class racer by William Fife III who was known as the "father of the class". She was build for Cowes in 1932 and soon after returned to the Clyde where she enjoyed an illustrious racing history winning many major trophies. We found her in Holland needing a new keel and took the opportunity to have her fully restored to her magnificant best. She'll be back on the Clyde looking like a brand new boat and racing again in 2016.
Sweet Sixteen is a 1970's Pegasus 700, rescued from a dyke in the Norfolk broads in a dishevelled state. See her here restored to her former glory with newly painted (rollered) topsides, decals and canvas work.
