One of a pair of boats designed by Alan Pape and raced by himself and his boat builder friend Clifford Adams. Fin keel design with a cold moulded mahogany hull solid mahogany coachroof coamings. Large self-draining cockpit. Bermudan sloop rig on a modern alloy spar. The interior has not been fitted out as she was used mainly for racing but with good headroom there is space for berths, a heads and galley. Tohatsu 4hp outboard, new 2012. After inspection it would appear she is structurally sound but needs a lot of cosmetic attention.

Wooden Ships Comments on this Alan Pape fin keel One Design Bm sloop:
Designed by Alan Pape and built by his good friend and well known boat builder Clifford Adams in Looe in 1985. She was one of a pair and built with the intention of racing which they both enjoyed very much. She proved to be a very fast boat and did a lot of miles with Pape at the helm.
She was bought by the present owners, who were friends of the builders family, a number of years ago after they were given permission by Adams to buy the boat, being deemed as suitable new owners.
Unfortunately pressures of the family business mean she has been used very little and is now in need of some work to bring her back into top condition.
