I read an old article the other day describing that the early Vertues would point upward with an engine, "A heavy engine soon has a Vertue pointing her shapely nose snootily into the sky." Apparently, there was a subsequent modification to account for an inboard. I'm curious from the experts out there if this design modification happened at the same time as the post-war, larger freeboard change, or if it occured at another point along the Vertue timeline. No urgency, just a bit of an academic question, and I'd rather not disturb the good folks at Laurent Giles Archive.
