    Yup, I like my boats round shapely like a woman nothing like the current crop of androgynous shoe boxes. I don’t need a rocket ship as my days of fanging it are long gone , replaced with critical design expectations such as commodious double grunter, full length lie down and snooze cockpit and adequate storage for books,wine and other essential survival at sea items. Got all that in this 32ft log of wood and if I really wanted to pimp the old girl I would like Santa to deliver me a carbon mast and a Townson dinghy.

    She was designed by Alan Smith antipodean take on a Holeman Pye really a Folkie on steroids. Cracker of a balanced little ship with just about as much boat in the water than out. Had her for quite a few moons now. New suite of sails and recent engineering heart lung replacement so all good.

    Our 40+ year old edge butt and resorcinol glued mahogany copper fastened sloop with close centred ribs laminated frames and sprung floors. No glass and as fair as the day she was built. Have a couple of splines to do around the boot topping which are most probably heat generated. Turn her on the marina regularly as sun in the land of the long white cloud is vicious.

    When good designers produce ugly boats.

    Bob, she has been listed on SA classified for quite a few moons. If I was not in the land of the long white cloud I would add her to my fleet in a heartbeat. https://sailinganarchy.com/classifieds/show-ad/?id=3827

    Crikey, the more I look at the Pelorus I find myself self disagreeing with myself. It was in reality a forerunner to this hottie with an abundance of personality. Forgive me Laurie for I have sinned.
