Today thanks to the UK site ‘My Classic Boat and Bob Aylott we get to have a peek at one of the best classic yachts ever – Peggy Dawn, her owner Hal Sisk shows us around his beautiful 1894 G.L. Watson 36ft Cutter. Filmed in Cowes and The Solent on a day with not a lot of wind.
Hal Sisk also gives us a great insight into the genius of designer G.L.Watson.

Today’s story features another boat that caught Ross Dawson’s eye. All we know about the double ender Julia is that she calls Nelson Marina home.
It would appear that Ross has a ‘thing’ for a nicely constructed ‘rear end i.e. a double ender. Ross commented that there is much published information about them…both pros & cons, but aside from all that, he just thinks they look good, further proof is his ketch Delight, which yes, it has a pointy stern 🙂
