Its quite far away but if you save it you will be able to zoom in a bit and get a closer look. Maybe somebody else will see this and have a photo of her up on the slip to help you.

Yes I agree she is a nice boat. The plans I have for her are excellent and have a lot of modeling detail. They were drawn by one of our our member's (Trawler Photos) James Pottinger. I only hope I can produce a model boat worthy of his drawings.

I see from Traplet Publications (http://www.traplet.com) and Cornwall Model Boats (http://www.cornwallmodelboats.co.uk/acatalog/mar2228.html) it was the November 1988 copy of 'Marine Modelling' mag the feature originally appeared in. I've got it somewhere, will get in touch if it turns up - their back issues dept or Jim Pottinger will probably have it though.
