A lazy day in the Hout Bay Harbour

I was called to the Hout Bay Boat Yard to discuss a 24" twin blade Maxprop on a classic yacht.

While I was there I took this picture of the yacht She, its a classic in its own right.

The design is ( i think) by Buchanan and was built in the far east in solid teak, even the plywood on the decks is teak.

The boat is featured in the book Cape Town's Traditional Boat Association, which was compiled and published by TBA member Colin Davies, pages 22 & 23 and with pictures of the previous owner the late Brian Bradfield.

Brian sold the boat to a guy who then had it fully rebuilt, it was re launched in October 2010 at the RCYC.

There are two more copies of that book for sale, R135 each and as a donation to the NSRI and Hout Bays Station 8.

Check the seals having a rest!

Nice winter weather.
