Dawn was built by Dauntless Boats on Canvey Island, (Essex) initially as a rowing dinghy but converted into a fine sailing craft by Allan Staley of Faversham, during the 1960s. She’s been trailered to the Brest and Douarnenez festivals and many in Cornwall. Dawn is 12ft long with an enormous 18in bowspit! Gaff rigged with Wilkinson sails from new. In 2022 she had a big refit by James Baker in Falmouth, (below and above decks!) and according to Spider, sails like a witch! Owned by Nicholas and Leila Hardy.

Okay, thank you
