Falmouth quay punt Teal on the Baltic
She’s a brave little gaff-rigged wooden Falmouth quay punt, and has quite a story to tell.
Teal was built in 1914 by the well-known Cornwall shipwright W E Thomas for the writer and artist Percy Woodcock, who called her Little Pal. At the time, Woodcock wrote an interesting article about her for Yachting Monthly, which includes her lines and layout, and some photos.
Since then she’s had an interesting life, having been rescued, renamed, restored and repaired many times, and has featured in Classic Boat on two occasions. Just back from the Baltic, she’s now in Tollesbury and I’m sure she would be a great buy for someone!

Hi,I bought 'Teal' back in May 2011 from a yard in Oxford.
I moved her to 'Iron Wharf' Boat yard Faversham Kent.
Unfortunatly my circumstances have now changed and I am offering her for sale once again.
I shall be listing her shortly.
When you have the link, let me know and I'll put up a post pointing to it.
Hello, just picked your site up whilst looking for a traditional sailing boat. Is Teal for sale and if so what price?
