For very reluctant sale is “Bluebottle”my beautiful Iain Oughtred design Tammie Norrie. 13’ 8” clinker-built all wood sailing dinghy in excellent condition, together with all rig (gunter main, tanbark colour), Douglas Fir spars, launch and road trailer (launch trailer new 2020; road base trailer new 2021), electric motor with 2 x 80mAh Marine Batteries fitted, oars, bronze rowlocks, bronze and leather mast traveller, cover, seat cushions, etc. Buoyancy lockers fore and aft. Wood centreboard swings up for shallow water work (as does the rudder). As construction is composite Marine Ply + West System epoxies, the hull has no leaks when stored dry and does not need to be placed in water for a while in order to “take up”. Oak keel, transom, gunwales, inwales, thwarts, belay pins and sawn knees. Finishes are International Cream hull, and all bright work varnished with Le Tonkinois. Bluebottle has always lived inside. Being very light and with no standing rigging, she is very quick and easy to rig + launch/recover. Complete package ready to tow away and sail tomorrow. Reason for sale is I have other boat projects on-going, and wouldn’t mind getting my garage space back..
