    Looks like it was cold molded hull. Lovely lines. Curious as to what is was. Familiar but can't quite place it. At a guess 18ft or there abouts. Sitting outside Glencairn Hotel in Glencain South Africa.

    Looks like a Flying Dutchman hull to me - missing the deck? Sad to see... One of the first boats I raced as a kid.

    Thanks Doug - that's it! Lovely lines. Pity to see as clearly made out of ply with lots of love and care and serious craftsmanship.
