History

This 6.5m long timber boat has been lying on her side on the foreshore of Hooe Lake by Hexton Quay since before 2005. The boat is clinker built but has had a skin of GRP laid on the outside, she has lightweight frames and copper fasteners and originally would have been fitted with a single mast. The hull is symmetrical in shape fore and aft and would have been fitted with a steeply-sloped full keel rudder which is now missing.
