History

Built for Cowes fisherman Bill Kennon for crayfishing around Seal Rocks. Originally gaff cutter rigged.

Bought by Charlie Richardson of Rhyll c1954, and has been at Rhyll ever since, being used at various times as a fishing party boat, amateur fishing boat and professional fishing boat. Re-rigged with a lug rig by Ken Wood c1959, with help of Mitch Lacco who made a new mainsail for her. The current owners bought her in 2005 as she was the last old boat left at Rhyll and they did not want to see her leave. Restoration should be complete by the end of 2007.
