Down at Swanwick Hard last weekend this Ian Oughtred designed Ness Yawl was being launched for her maiden voyage. Owner and builder Mark, standing on the right has spent six years building Fleta.
Mark told me that "Fleta" is an old English word which means swift, a more than appropriate term for what is a fast traditional design based on Shetland fishing craft.
Nice work well caught. Would be interested to see her in action.ReplyDelete
