LEISURELY

The motor sailer Leisurely was designed and built by Jimmy Reid, the only son of Northcote boatbuilder – James Reid.
She was built c.1960’s, of kauri / carvel, measures 28’ and has bilge fins. That folks is all I can tell you.
Those bilge keels, must be a taxing when under power 😉
Can anyone else shed some light on her?

Sad to see one of the Devonport Yacht Clubs long standing yachts – Pikelet – broke her moorings early last night and has washed up in the sadly very familiar spot by Windsor Reserve. As always locals were able to get a line to her to hopefully keep her off the rocks. Fingers crossed todays weather and tide is kind to her.
