Fabian Bush builds a winkle brig

FaithThis one was built by Fabian Bush of Rowhedge in Essex. I wish I had more information about winkle brigs to share but I haven’t – there’s very little online that I can find – and Google is full of the very different little plastic weekender of the same name.

Here’s just a little information from the book Inshore Craft, scanned by Google.

Anyway, I can say that the sharp-eyed can sometimes spot¬†one sailing out of Brightlingsea, just down the river from Rowhedge…

My thanks to Boat Building Academy¬†student Sam Robinson for letting me know about this one, ahd for the Google Books link! Cheers Sam, and good luck with the boats you’re working on.
