So this is my Beer lugger just before I start renovation.
She was built in the 1980s in Saeto about two miles from Beer where I live.
Built by "Mears Boatbuilders" which are still going strong and still building wooden Luggers.
The Lugger bit refers to the type of sail that these boats once had when used for fishing, in fact there are several Luggers that sail/race every week in the summer from beer beach. Up until two years ago Puffin was part of the fleet.
She is 16ft x 7ft English Elm over English Oak designed for being winched up the beach day after day.
She is basically sound and just needs a lot of cosmetic work and a new engine!.
Good to join your group.
Will keep you updated on progress.
