Been kept garaged since.Originally built by Peter Freebody & Co. on the Thames, London, in 1968.I’m listing this boat on behalf of my father who has beautifully restored this classic dinghy with only a few jobs required to finish. Pretty much ready to sail soon, with all the major restoration complete.The Comet is 14ft long with 6ft beam and was extensively restored using 6mm marine grade ply, with new American white oak frames throughout. Sealed externally with West epoxy with 2 undercoats and then 2 coats of paint.Only a few small jobs left unfinished (due to ill health) including:Mast and rigging, (no running rigging present, Standing rigging is on the mast),Keel plate to be inserted,New rudder unit needs attaching and painting.Condition of sails and mast are good, as seen in photographs. Top cover included.This is quite a rare classic sailing dinghy and almost ready to sail!Please note that there is no trailer included and the Comet is collection only so please be aware you’ll need a suitable trailer for collection.Cash on collection only please.Please contact me via ebay or my father directly on 0114 2362772 if you have any questions.I have many more photographs which can be emailed if required (only allowed 12 photos on the listing!)There is a sensible reserve on this Dinghy which reflects the many hours spent restoring this boat by hand over the years, using traditional boat-building methods, not to mention having spent in excess of £1000 on materials alone.Unfortunately, ill health means this must sell, so someone with a passion for sailing can enjoy it as it was meant to be enjoyed!We’ll be happy to answer any questions you may have so please don’t hesitate to ask.Good luck and happy bidding!
