Edith is a Polperro gaffer built circa 1890, one of the oldest boats attending. She worked as a fishing boat (FY92) until 1923 by a fisherman called William Curtis. He had a daughter ‘Edith’ who the boat was named after. From 1923 until the late 1980s, she was owned by the Ferris family in St Mawes who used her as a sail training boat. Restored in the 90s by Richard Toyne of Falmouth, she was then used for five years as an oyster dredger before sold to Mal Stone.
