“Pierce Eye” A Walton & Frinton One Design. Morgan Giles built in 1921. She is one of seven class boats, having a very high handicap in the Old Gaffers Association. Meaning she is very successful indeed! She is a half-decked open classic racing boat design. To be sailed by two crew and is easily trailerable. I found her completely wrecked on Haling Island in Hampshire, and through a serendipitous series of events I was introduced to the grandson of her builder who very kindly presented me with a copy of the original plans. From which I lofted out her new hull and made a new Iroko keel and stem laminated it as one piece. She has a new Iroko transom and is planked in Sitka Spruce. Her present state; In situ in my cabinet maker’s workshop on a custom building bench, with all building molds set up.- Building Molds in place ready for ribbing (Planks copper riveted) – Some ribs pre steam bent- remaining ribs shaped.- centre board case and brackets fabricated in Iroko- Rudder and Tiller fabricated in Iroko and Ash.- Iroko for thwarts included (rough sawn boards) – All original brass work and fittings polished.- All fastenings required to complete included.- Original Cast Iron Keel.- New Steel drop plate.- Original Mast and Gaff. New timber for Boom and some standing and running rigging.- New timber for Gunwales – Original Sail plans are currently on file with a sail maker in Exmouth, therefor a conversation is to be had with him.- Copy of plans included.She can be easily lifted onto a boat trailer in her current position with the molds secured, to allow the new owner to continue the build. I’m happy to answer any questions and viewings are most welcome. Sadly due to my Partner’s ill health I’m unable to finish the project and would dearly love her to go to a good home and see her racing again!Thanks for looking.
