I have recently acquired a Fairey Falcon pocket cruiser which is fitted with twin keels and has a small cabin. Although I have done extensive research on the Internet I can find very little information about these boats.
This one seems very unusual in that she seems never to have had a centreboard, although I believe that most of the Falcons were delivered as open dayboats with centreboard. The keels look like they might be original because they have been well fitted and have cast iron ballast weights which look to have been specially made for the job.
She seems to have the correct Albacore-based rig but I cannot tell what changes have been made to her until I get the paint stripped and examine the various repairs to her hull and superstructure. I would like to find out more about these old boats, if possible. Perhaps I need a pointer to some paper-based documentation, or maybe some drawings or photographs. All replies will be gratefully received.
