Checkstone 28 sloop                                                         Length on deck                                     30’ Beam                                                     9’ Draft                                                      4’   Designed by J.J. Bickford FRINA, built by C.H. Lavis & Son, Topsham, Devon  in 1973. John Bickford designed this yacht for himself, he had her built by his colleagues and neighbours in Topsham and she remained in the family until sold to the present owners by Wooden Ships in 2004. A wholesome yacht with a positive sheer, transom stern and a full round bilge which, coupled with a generous beam for her time, produce a bigger yacht than her dimensions might indicate and a comfortable, dry, stable cruising yacht with useful shoal draft.   The yacht was built using the strip plank method of construction which produces a continuous hull skin of great strength. 1 ¼” iroko  hull skin using Cascophen resorcinol glue, reinforced by 2 ½” x 2 ½” laminated iroko frames at 2’6” centres with 2 steamed intermediates all fastened using copper rivets and roves.. 2 tons longer external iron ballast keel with stainless steel keel bolts, replaced in 2005. Galvanised steel strap floors.   Ply deck,  Cascover sheathed and painted to give a low maintenance and water-tight deck. Double thickness sheer strake picked out in dark maroon with varnished iroko rubbing strake and varnished iroko toe rail. The extra thick sheer strake substitutes for an internal beam shelf and as part of the hull skin, gives a wider land for the deck to create a very strong deck edge all round. The deck is uncluttered with ample width of side decks to allow easy passage fore and aft. Stainless steel twin chain roller stermhead fitting. Stainless steel Sampson post on the fore deck. Pair of varnished cleats on the fore deck, a very useful varnished cleat each side midships – why does every yacht not have them? – and a pair of varnished cleats on the after deck.   Very comfortable self-draining cock-pit with twin drains. Two panels in the well, seated on rubber gaskets, lift to give good access to the back of the engine, the shaft gland and the stainless steel fuel tank. Seating each side and aft is continuous with the deck removing the usual problems of water seeping into the cock-pit lockers, varnished iroko trim round the edge. Access to the cock-pit lockers is by doors in the well. The locker lids are all carefully  labelled with the contents of that locker. Deep, varnished iro
