Another new gaffer

Spotted this open gaffer heading up river in breezy conditions, I don’t know if she’s a local boat or a visitor, she looks like she might be a Tosher.

A version of the tradional west country boat has been made in GRP for many years by Martin Heard's yard down in Mylor Creek, but we were too far away to tell if this one was GRP or wood.


  1. If that's not GRP, then that is one well kept wood boat!
    A good friend of mine who has spent a working lifetime as a shipwright says that a wood boat that feigns to appear as fiberglass is a crime against nature.

  2. I think you're right GRP - but between the distance and my eyesight I wouldn't swear to it.
