Length on deck                                  31’ Lwl                                                    27’ Beam                                                 8’6” Draft                                                  5’6”   Tonnage                                             7TM     Designed and built by Dickie of Tarbert, Loch Fyne in 1939. The design is typical of her period with a sweeping stemline from stemhead down to the ballast keel in a fair curve, a fairly steep rise to the floors, and a very sweet sheer with a gentle lift to the short counter stern. There are some references to the yacht being an Alfred Mylne design and the Mylne Archive have a note of her name but no drawings although there are several Mylne designs which are remarkably similar to this yacht. There is no doubt that there was considerable contact between the Dickies and Alfred Mylne and one Dickie brother Peter actually did his drawing apprenticeship with the other great name in the area, Wm Fife.   Planked in 7/8” Columbian pine or similar, all fastened with copper nails, clenched in the Scottish fashion, to steamed oak timbers, 1 ¼” x 7/8” at approx 10” centres. This is a very fair hull, painted white with a thin blue cove line.   Long external iron ballast keel. Mild steel galvanised keel bolts reported renewed in 1991/2 one removed in July 04, found with minimal wastage replaced, bolts checked again in 2007. Galvanised strap floors. 2003 survey recommends simply wire brushing a painting. All sea-cocks removed for checking and one replaced in 2004 refit.   The deck has been upgraded. The original canvas-sheathed pine deck has been stripped of the canvas, faired and overlaid with ply, epoxy/glass sheathed and painted. New varnished teak toe rails and rubbing strakes with carved cove line below, picked out in blue. The deck is particularly clear and uncluttered with generous side decks. Low level varnished teak fore hatch on the deck in front of the mast and a hatch on the aft deck abaft the rudder stock fitted with sealed, drop-in ply box gas bottle locker with one bottle, both with smart covers. Stainless steel pulpit, push-pit and stanchions all round with twin guard wires. Wooden cleat on the aft deck to take aft lines. Sampson post on the fore deck. Substantial period manual windlass on the fore deck take forward lines, bronze fair leads forward and aft. Twin chain roller galvanised stemhead fitting.       The coach-roof
