Owners of Penny, Steve and Marge, sent me an email to say that Petite Brise was designed as a new tender for the famous Pilot Cutter Jolie Brise . She is owned by Dauntsey's school, so the tender was designed so that it could be built by pupils at the school and would be a safe and tough tender which could be used to teach basic boat handling and sailing.
The design is a Swampscott Dory, with the typical flat floor, the clinker ply construction is strong and light as the boat is stowed on deck.
Steve and Marge made a great job of building Penny. According to the designer's notes she is light enough to be car topped - I like her more and more.
