It’s definitely a Grand Banks but what I am trying to find out is if it was built from any particular plan. The hull has been well carved and is bread and butter and the deck planked with pine ?
Hull length 34 inches.
The builder definitely liked cascamite wood glue because it’s all over the place and they didn’t wipe it of.
The masts and how they fit to the deck is - well odd and the rigging is mental; hooks everywhere and a lot of them in the wrong places.
Sails are made from kite material, very light and serviceable but looks a bit naf close up.
I will post more as I chip away the glue.
I may put radio in it but initially will probably set it up for free sailing as well as I want to see how it sails first.
I like schooners both old and new and have three or four. I introduced fast free sailing class A schooners to the Southwold Free sailing regattas about 20 years ago. 27 inches long, three pounds all up weight 2 pounds of which was in the bulb keel on a Victorian split keel 14 inches down.
I attach a photo just taken from a picture on the wall of gelt
Which wone the A class championships at Southwold.
