    So sad to see a once beautiful yacht in a state of abandonment on the banks of the River Stour at Wrabness, England.

    Can anyone identify the design/designer, she's well made of plywood and an alloy mast, L circa 36 feet. Richard Woods design maybe?

    No Gazza, taint Jim's - it looks like a Frank Pelin to me.

    Thanks for the suggestions but I cant find any 'evidence' to substantiate its a Pelin? His website doesnt show any cat designs/pictures! Any links ot pics please? Looks a darn nice boat though.

    RHP, there's a couple of Pelins moored near Herne Bay on the Waitemata; we look at them everytime we sail by - I'm pretty sure your mystery boat is one of them. Duncan and Andy Stuart used to race one called Scorcher, before they bought Kraken 40 Krisis. Hey Dunc, what do you think?

    Yep, looks like Pelins 32 ft Snowbird ?? design to me, a nicely proportioned cat.
