This is the clinker-built bawley Fiddle of Faversham, currently at Rolt’s Boatyard, Bristol, for some serious repair and restoration work.
Mark Rolt says that below the water line she is primarily still elm, but a couple of planks are gone. However, she has no hog whatsoever.
Mark, who worked at Iron Wharf for a time as a youngster before running away to sea and living in the USA for a while, is appealing for information about her history, if anyone has any please? What is her age (her clinker construction suggests she may be quite old), who has owned and used her, and where has she been over the years?
If you can help, please drop me a line at email@example.com and I’ll pass your information, email address etc on to Mark.
PS – in answer to a query, she’s 29ft long.
