"Nick Gates found her as a wreck and spent ten years rebuilding her".

Congratulations to him for having done a fantastic job saving a living memory and a beautiful boat. I would say that I share this compulsion of “saving” beautiful old boats and I have already done my share in the past recovering a beautiful Portuguese Canoa, also from the 30’s but whose design (like the one on this boat) is centuries old.

For the ones that like traditional boats and want a replica, that is another way of saving memories and having a beautiful boat, the Portuguese Naval Museum has complete plans of many beautiful traditional boats that will sell for the price of the paper, to help to maintain those memories living.
