Look at the above image. The mixture of craft include a fibreglass dinghy and two hard chine craft – boats which first appeared in the late 1950s. One of the latter, built in marine ply, is of a very crude design. The other, which as I remember was built of broad planking, but in hard chine construction, was of a very shapely design, and was fitted for a drop keel. It could accommodate a mast and was built for sailing. It was heavy to haul and akward to handle whenever we gave a hand to pull it up.
