I built this to the Vic Smeed MV Eileen design in the mid 60's whilst at the Graham Sea Training School in Scarborough. I modelledd the details on various Scarborough keelboats and my Grandma crocheted a net for it. Towed the net off Scarborough one calm summer day quite successfully!
I believe my parents sold it to a local fisherman in the 80's, possibly the Collins or Collings family. I'd be interested if anyone in the Scarborough fishing community knows if is still around as I don't have any good photos.
