Name that boat

Postby Gordonmc » Fri Apr 17, 2009 11:58 am

Seen off Bute heading South last weekend.

I couldn't get close enough to see a name, but she looks like one of the new build Bristol pilots.
Anyone recognise her?

Looks like a Bristol Channel Pilot Cutter - there's a firm building them somewhere doon sooth.

Here's Mischief, seen at the Crinan Classic last year and named after Bill Tilman's original.

http://www.bristolclassicboat.co.uk at Redcliffe Wharf in Bristol Harbour. I watched the new Mischief leaving the Avon on it's maiden trip last year - IMO the Pilot Cutters are great-looking boats. Peggy is another one I see fairly often, and I followed the reconstruction of Cariad which happened in our yard (a good place to go and shelter from the rain, and have a cuppa with the boatbuilders :) )
