    Simpler is better, except when complicated looks really cool.

    SS 19: Believed to have been built in St Ives in 1894.

    She had a 13 hp engine installed in 1915. It is believed that she had some work on the hull in around 1927 by Peake's of Newlyn and it is thought that two new engines of 26 hp were also then fitted. She fished under the ownership of the Barber family until 1933 when she had a fire below decks at Newlyn and then ceased fishing.


    For 50 years she then became a house-boat on the Fal for Ralph Tomlin. After several other owners she finally sank at her moorings and was taken ashore.
    She was bought by John Lambourn and transported by road from Penryn on Monday 20th October 2003 to a site next to Cosalt in Newlyn.
    She is double-ended and 15 tons, 44' long with a beam of 12' and has been restored on site.

    She was in Newlyn Harbour being fitted out in November 2007 and has been sailing in Mount's Bay from Newlyn and attending events since.

    And we let cool boats go to the landfill in the States to make room for Twinebegos.
    Who owns these boats? Are they private yachts now for the most part?

    Yeah mostly private, some have been fortunate enough to get lottery funding, some set up as charities. I saw her when she first came out the shed in Newlyn, but missed the launch.

    I wish I knew more about big lug rigs. I think I'd like them.

    They are a bloody handfull for a short crew, but they are excellent drivers off wind.

    The Manx dipping lug Nickys went over to standing lug nobbys when they could no longer get enough experienced hands for crew. A power capstan helps a lot when dipping the lug.
    Dipping lugs are fast on the wind as well.
    It really is quite difficult to build an ugly wooden boat.
