Nr. Great Yarmouth Norfolk UK
A Bermudan Cutter built by Brook Motorcraft Company of Lowestoft (later to become Brook Marine in 1937).Designed by W W Downing for Mr Hamish Nichol FRCS .
This vessel has been a pet project at the home of a retired cabinet maker. The restoration is complete, except for getting her to the water stepping the mast and bending on the sails. Then she would be good to Go.
Hull is Carvel planked pitch pine on grown oak frames and American elm ribs with Burmese teak fore, aft and side decks, in good order.
The internal layout has been sympathetically altered to accommodate: a new flush toilet, a galley area and navigation station, using quality reclaimed mahogany and teak.
The saloon seating has been re-upholstered, is in dry store, new stainless steel water-tanks two of have been custom made and are fitted under the saloon seating.
The vessel has been re-wired for 240v shore power and a 12volt domestic system, new LED lighting installed to the saloon.
The cockpit was completed overhauled: Marine ply decking with West epoxy system, newly formed marine ply locker boxes with teak hinged lids, new teak doors to lazarette which houses a new fuel tank with gauge and sender. The original teak gratings have been refitted.
The rudder has been refurbished with new stainless steel pintels and a new removable Ash tiller.

Built of pitch pine on grown oak frames and American elm ribs with Burmese teak fore, aft and side deck, the majority of which is still in situ and in good order. Approx 50% of port side planking was replaced above waterline using best quality larch onto oak ribs with traditional copper fixings.

The entire deck was sheathed in marine ply and West Epoxy system and the refurbished teak relayed.
