The response to our call for anarchists to share info about various ton class boats has been nothing short of amazing! This might be one of the most interesting things we’ve done, and once again, it is because of what so many of you have contributed. We had to start somewhere, and this half tonner is a good one. Again, if you know of an older ton boat that is worth sharing, please do.
Read your piece on the site today. I have an old half tonner that I am restoring. It was called Silver Shamrock IV and was built in 1978. This one has a lifting keel and was originally built for Harold Cudmore in the Shamrock yard, with the build team leader Killian Bushe no less. (It is written into the laminate) Its a great looking boat and one day I will get the time to get it back to what it once was. For those who have never seen such a thing, the original IOR cert is attached!
Best regards, love the site.
