ender, larch on oak. Built for Grimsby owners
for crabbing and shrimping, registered GY835.
Dimensions 34' x 10' 6" x 4'. At some point
she was fitted with a Kelvin 2 cylinder TVO
15BHP engine. Sold to Hull in 1959, then to
Richard Griffiths and Eric Hammond in 1961,
who fished her for a year, and then sold to
Hessle, where she laid for the next 26 years.
Bought again by Eric Hammond, in a derelict
state, in 1988, she was restored with the assistance
of Phil Kennedy as shipwright.
Now sailed for fun, she has sails by J Lawrence
and Gayle Heard, and is now fitted with a 60BHP
diesel. Campaigned around the Humber at various
regattas, she is remarkably fast, comfortable
and well mannered.
