Good old Emsworth boats

We seem to go to Emsworth more often in the winter which is a good place for lunch and a walk around which usually offers an interesting boat or two.

Less and less wooden boats like this nice cruiser still around, the cost of upkeep and especially moorings contributing to their disappearance

Pretty sure this is a SCOD - South Coast One Design designed by Charles Nicholson and billed as the affordable classic. What a great place to keep a wooden boat, just a few steps away no excuse for not doing all those small maintenance jobs and touching up the varnish.

This looks like Ocean Pearl restred by local boat builder Nick Gates, lovely.
