A chap called Udo has been in touch to ask for information about a boat he has bought recently.
She’s a strip-planked 37ft gaff-rigged cutter named Medusa Bay and is currently in a marina at Hull – though he plans in the spring to sail her to Blankenberge, Belgium.
Udo was put in touch with intheboatshed.net because has been told that she was built at Faversham. We’ve since learned that she was actually built at Conyer, though her spars came from Faversham. Still, I’m sure Udo would be delighted to learn more about her story, and for any old photos readers may have to hand please!
PS Now in the autumn of 2012 Medusa Bay is for sale. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org, and I’ll put you in touch with the owner.
