  1. What a really beautiful account of true dedication a one design boat. Marcus deserves all the admiration for his stoic persistence. I shall look out for her on my next visit to Fowey, our method of beating cabin fever in normal circumstances.

  2. Great project. Thanks for posting it Gavin.

    It is always a hard one with historic boats. Because it is emotional everything that happens, the successes and failures and even the false steps gain a context.

    It might have been very much simpler to just build the boat from new materials. But the connection with the original are what makes it into a deeper experience.
