Lymington Scows

Constantly on the lookout for information to help me with the restoration of the Scow we walked down past the Royal Lymington YC recently. As you can see most of the fleet of Scows were laid up and covered for the winter.

But one hardy sailor was taking advantage of the bright morning which gave me the opportunity to have a look at the Lymington version, most are made locally to the town by John Claridge Boats and have moulded stern seats with built in bouyancy.

There were some other details which are differnt, the main one being the keel, which on the Lymington boats is part of the hull moulding except for the stem with is laminated teak, more decorative than any other reason I guess, as it would have been easy to continue the moulding.
