I love wooden spars! It is always
exciting when someone wants us to build a new mast
Lapwing is a gaff cutter, built
on Leigh Bawley lines. She is shoal draft with a
centre plate and is a good sound boat but her old
mast had serious problems!
Update 19th September 2017
We have fitted a new port rubbing
strake, carried out some plank repairs to the port
quarter and given Lapwing a complete repaint and
partial recaulking of the topsides this summer.
