    Description
    This 14 foot carvel construction gaff rigged sailing dinghy was built in 1939. This vessel was raced by the original owners successfully from 1939 - 1950s.
    SignificanceAs a replica this boat conflicts with the current Collection Policy of the Museum which does not accept replicas. The statement that is a typical 14 foot dinghy is dubious as most small racing dinghies of this type would likely be seam batten construction, and it has no details of its builder to support its provenance.
