Lugger. Built by Percy Mitchell of Mevagissey, Cornwall in 1927 as a Tosher, a small half decked fishing boat found in every Cornish port. The lug rig was the favoured rig for smaller inshore vessels with it’s effeciency and simplicity, earlier examples of this type were rigged with a single standing lug while later boats adopted the more modern gaff rig. Length on deck 20? Lwl 19?9? Beam 7? Draft 3?6? The boat was found in Plymouth by the present owner in 1992 in poor condition but he traced the history of the little boat and determined to rebuild her. Work did not start until 1999, all carried out by Plymouth boat builder and surveyor, Bruce Isaacs and the boat was launched in 2002. The larch planking of the original hull was found to be in remarkably good condition but the steamed timbers were badly deteriorated. The keel, stem, transom and fashion pieces and many steamed timbers were replaced. A pair of stainless-steel angle ring frames were set forward and aft of the mast with gusset knees to the corresponding deck beams The garboards and several planks in the topside were replaced. A high level stringer was fitted about 3rd plank down A new beam shelf was fitted backed up by a heavy rubbing strake on the outside to give a strong edge to the deck. The planking was then overlaid on the outside with a layer of ¼? cedar planking set diagonally using epoxy glue to give a totally fair, continous surface and adding enormous strength to the hull. Long external 600kg lead ballast keel cast by Iron Bros of Wadebridge, Cornwall. Small quantity of internal trimming ballast. Stainless steel keel bolts new in 2002 supplied by Iron Bros.. Floors formed as originally built by running the steamed timbers right round across the centre-line in one piece. Transom-hung rudder with cord-bound iron tiller fitted with varnished hand grip. The deck is straight-laid in iroko over a ply sub-deck over t&g pine on new, laminated oak deck beams. Varnished king plank and cover-boards. 9? iroko bulwark varnished inside and painted outside with a scribed caveat line, carried on oak through-deck stanchions with wide, varnished iroko capping rail. The heavy structural iroko rubbing strake on the outside is also varnished. The very tight deck seams are payed with black epoxy/graphite and the deck is sealed with Coelan with non-skid patches masked off showing a mat finish. Pair of heavy oak Sampson posts at the after corners of the cock-pit and another Sampson post on the fore deck take the mooring lines. Massive galvanised iron stem-head fitting with chain roller to stbd Bronze fair leads forward and aft. Bronze mushroom vents on the fore deck and the aft deck to vent the fore peak and the lazarette. The coach-roof is built with varnished mahogany coamings morticed to separate corner posts with epoxy-glass sheathed ply roof, edge trimmed in varnished mahogany. Grab rails on the top. Sliding hatch in a varnished garage and wash-boards to the cabin entrance from the cock-pit. Separate varnished mahogany fore hatch on the fore deck with fixed light in a bronze bezel. The cock-pit is formed by heavy varnished mahogany edging with a seat/locker below each side fitted with varnished slats allowing the crew to sit well down in the boat, sheltered by the coach-roof or sit up on the side deck. Manual bilge pump under the side deck to port. Engine controls to stbd. Locker door to lazarette. Iroko laid, lifting sole board, finished in Coelan with matt non-slip.
