She was designed by Derek Vaughan's father - William Edward Vaughan who built the hull, mahogany clinker on oak in 1967/68. At this time the ‘troubles’ started within Northern Ireland and Derek's parents decided to move to a country village and his father gave up nearly all to do with boat building. Consequently the boat was stored in a large shed and remained unfinished until 2013 when Derek was able to take on the task and finally complete his fathers work. With no plans Derek designed and decided what the final outcome would be. Quite a few people along the way provided much needed and excellent advice (including Arthur Beale's!). Her overall length is 20 feet and 7 foot at the beam. Engine is a Nanni diesel 38HE. All the paint, caulk, varnish and fittings supplied via Arthur Beales.
A great project and story. Well done Derek!
