    A 12 Footer dinghy of carvel construction with seating for four. Made of Kauri and oregon wood, spotted gum na to tree wood. The dinghy is constructed without tingles - each plank had to be shaped to fit.
    SignificanceAcquired in 1986 as an example of boatbuilding craftsmanship, in particular carvel boat building. The builder Hayes is now recognised as an important shipwright of that period.
    As an example of a Hayes built craft however it has a low level of significance compared to larger extant vessels by this well known builder. It has no particular individual story or background that has significance either. The museum has vessels such as KATHLEEN GILLETT, THISTLE and JOHN LOUIS which are good examples of carvel construction.
