Torbay J Class. 20′ x 19’wl x 6’4″ x 2?/6? Built by Louis Gale of Paignton in 1920, one of believed 11 of this class built to race in the Torbay Handicapp Class 2. One other known to exist. Originally rigged as a sloop she was converted to a yawl in the 1950?s. She has vice-free, sparkling performance, a delight to own and sail. Her excellent road trailer and ability to take the ground makes her a economic yacht to run. Long keel, nicely tapered bow sections and transom stern. Very sweet sheer line. Carvel planked in ½? Brazilian mahogany with a very fair finish, varnished inside face. Sheer strake varnished with double rubbing strakes. All copper fastened to steamed oak timbers. Varnished elm transom. Transom hung rudder with wrought iron tiller kinked to fit around the off-set mizzen mast. Long external iron ballast keel, keel bolts thought to have been replaced in the 1990?s. Galvanised steel centre-plate with bronze centre-board winch under the fore deck operated by a lanyard from the helm. Deep varnished mahogany coamings tapered to a point at the forward end. Tufnol capping protects the top edge. Centre thwart and side seats aft, all beautifully varnished mahogany. Painted pine bottom boards with good flat floor area allowing easy movement fore and aft. 1990 painted ply deck. Sampson post on the fore deck takes the heel of the bowsprit. Bronze deck fittings. Fractional bermudian yawl rig on varnished masts and spars. The main mast steps on the keel through a mast brace cross piece and locked in. The mizzen mast steps through the aft deck on the centre-line. Stainless steel rigging wire, new in 2003, to external bronze chain plates. Main mast runners on single whips to cars on the sheet tracks, tails led through the coamings via bronze pulley-wheel fittings. Pair of original bronze headsail sheet winches on the coamings. Fixed bowsprit and bumpkin. Roller reefing varnished main boom with bronze fittings sheets to a bronze horse over the tiller. Headsail sheets led through cars on tracks on the side decks. Mainsail, mizzen and jib by Chris Scanes at Sail and Canvas, Topsham, all new in 2003 and in as new condition. Pre-war cotton spinnaker. Honda 4-stroke 2hp outboard engine, new in 2005, on a cantilever bracket on the transom. Fisherman anchor. Chain and warp. Mooring warps. Custom built 2-wheel road trailer. Cock-pit and sail covers. She had a refit in the early 1990?s and again in 2001 when a couple of shifts of planking were replaced, several steamed timbers replaced, hood-ends refastened, total cosmetics inside and out, new sails and rigging. In 2008 the bottom was burnt off to bare wood, recaulked and repainted, the topsides were repainted and all bright work revarnished. An eye-catching little yacht, a very stable day-boat, great sport, easily handled and maintained, great pride of ownership.
