Rum Runner

Spotted by friend Malcolm on the pontoon at Cowes, I always thought this type of boat was called a Baby Bootlegger


Judging by my internet search there are a lot of replicas around 30 feet. The original Baby Bootlegger was designed in 1924 by George Crouch and was a Gold Cup winner.


I presume this is a replica and apologies to the owner if it isn't, either way it's magnificent and immaculate. Plans are available so if you fancy building one and just happen to have a stock of mature mahogany safely stashed away

  2. Steve, really lovely but can you imagine trying to keep it safe from the normal knocks and bumps that boats get, no chance of tying alongside an old barnacle encrusted wall!!
