An original 1930’s Mevagissey Tosher built by master boatbuilder Percy Mitchell of Portmellon is ideal for restoration and renovation to either its original form, or to make a beautiful day boat with Gaff or lug rig, with either inboard or outboard propulsion - or none at all!! she has 3 sets of engine beds, fitted over the years, but none I doubt original, but her original mast step is still in place, she is just crying out to be saved
This boat is now available for Restoration, or sale ‘as is’ from Marcus Lewis, Unit 5 Windmill, Fowey. tel 07973 420568
The hull is not in too bad a condition, there is some rot around the gunnels and top planks, the transom needs replacement, as do all the steamed Oak ribs, but she would require a considerable amount of work, nothing too difficult, but well worth it when done. Give me a call on 07973 420568 for more info or to view

Over the summer we have completely restored an original Uffa Fox designed National 12 sailing dinghy. built in 1948, to the Uffa King design.
She was in a bit of a state, and needed 8 new planks, all new ribs, a lot of scraping and revarnishing, new decks, refastening, renovation of the original wooden mast and boom, replacement of a few fittings, but looks stunning now, and is being sailed again on the River Camel

The latest Fowey River clinker sailing dinghy was launched a couple of weeks ago, number 61 in the fleet, named Puffling, the boat was built for world champion sailors Kim and Sarah Furniss, who intend to race competitively in the fleet at Fowey. Kim and Sarah were world champions in the Dart 18, and also raced Tornado cats in Olympic qualifyers, but have now decided on something a little more sedate, but possibly just as challenging - racing around Fowey harbour-with its fickle winds and frustrating tides- and hopefully encouraging other Fowey River sailors to get on the water.

St Mawes One Design no. 21 ‘Saskia’ is outside the workshop waiting to come in for a few repairs, and some new floorboards. Saskia took the brunt of a Ribs Outboard propellor while on her moorings in a gale, and has suffered damage to four of her topside planks on the port side. Another boat collided with her port side near the transom, and damaged the deck, rubbing strake and covering board.
St Mawes One designs were designed and built by Frank Peters at Freshwater boatyard in St Mawes, and over the years from 1923 - 1964 thirty three boats were built. Frank retired in 1964 and five years later Brian crockford built a ‘SMOD’ but it was to be another 13 years before the next boat was added to the fleet, no.35 was built by Jonathan Leach, and he has since built a further 10 boats, bringing the fleet up to 45 although 2 have been lost over the years. Thegunter rig was changed to Bermudan in 1953. More information can be found on www.stmawesod.org.uk
