This from I think the first edition of the Proper Yacht. From memory posted in an Anarchy thread on double enders. I have no idea if she still lives.
There is a sistership of Angantyre for sale in Comox BC, possibly by Wills Marine. She is extremely well done, and recently given a mirror finish at Ocean Pacific in Campbell River. A very thorough , and practical welder fitter named Chuck Birchill bought the partly finished hull from a school teacher in Ladysmith BC and finished her extremely well .
