If you type in "Little Tim and the Brave Sea Captain" into a google search (click images) you will see a little harbour launch just like this. The Little Tim books by Edward Ardizzone were some of the books I read more years ago than I care to think.This little launch you have featured could have come straight out of the pages of an Ardizzone book.She is certainly a beautiful example of the type.
Thanks for the kind words, I built this launch 'Bamboo Viper' for myself in 2004.I have been building clinker boats since 1976,starting out at Edgar Cove Ltd Salcombe.Nick Smith.
