“Boatshed Lancashire are delighted to offer this very special G L Watson designed Gaff Cutter. Originally designed in 1896 this particular example was built in 1996 by Colombini in the South of France. During her build she was the subject of the Classic French sailing magazine, Chasse Maree no/105.
She has been professionally maintained since being built, the teak decks were relaid and she was repainted in 2013. Always kept under cover this is a beautiful looking day sailor.
A brand new mast was delivered in 2013 and is still under wraps as the boat has not been used.”

not at all what I expected below the waterline. beautiful boat though
Same thought. Looks sleek and fun, until you see it is dragging a trench digger through the water.

That stem needs a good hand with a wood rasp Sawzall.
