    Description
    Mark 1 or Mark I Moth class racing dinghy.
    SignificanceThis is an example of a kit built English Moth and is not an early Australian type. It has skiff shape and conventional stem, whereas the typical Australian Moth was a scow shaped hull with a narrow depth snubbed bow. It is not a Mk 1 Moth. An example of a Mk 1 or a very early Australian snub nosed Moth would be more appropriate for the NMC
