Thames B Rater

Post by Chalky » Sun Jul 30, 2017 1:11 pm

After months of scheming, the pre First World War Thames B Rater has made to my barn.
There isn't too much work to do, new ply deck, a few timbers have cracked and some seams have opened up....

I can't believe this is my new project. What a yacht!

Linton Hope, 1910. I'm now told she might be a 0.7 Rater.

Linton Hope! Chapeau!

(I've got his book on amateur boatbuilding and his edition of Dixon Kemp).
