Length on deck: 44' beam: 11'4' draft: 6' tonnage: 17.8 tons displacement. Thames tonnage 20tm designed and built by dickies of tarbert on the west coast of scotland. Of the three dickie brothers one took over the old family firm in tarbert, another moved south across the water to bangor in n wales and a third brother was apprenticed to the great william fife in his drawing office. At the time, dickies was held in the same high regard as alfred mylne and the now great william fife's yard. The design is a proper long keeled, sea-worthy hull inspired by the scottish fishing boat type with a full canoe stern, sharp almost vertical stem, good free-board and full mid-ships sections. The mid-ships wheel-house is a wonderful construction built in to the step in the deck, multi-faceted forward, cabin entrance each side and a shallow coach-roof running aft to a lovely deep well-sheltered little cock-pit. All deck fittings are in bronze and original but she has also been intelligently modernised with modern nav lights and equipment to bring her up to expected modern standards. Built in the tarbert yard in 1936, the yard must have been delighted to land this high spec order and she was undoubtedly a very expensive yacht indeed. Tunnag has passed through our hands several times in the last 35 years so we are quite familiar with her. For the last few years she has been in local ownership here in dartmouth, the owner first apprenticed to moodys as a boat builder and later building high tech one-off race yachts in his own yard so well qualified to bring a quality boat up to top condition. They are justifiably proud of the yacht but as time goes on they are finding that a smaller yacht with more sail would suit them better now. The construction is robust, almost fishing boat strength planked in proper old 1 ' burma teak, and finished varnished in the topsides from new, anti-fouled below the w/l. Even much of the inside of the hull is varnished! The frames are grown oak all through at approx 3' centres, doubled in futtocks, side pinned with single steam bent oak intermediates. The long oak keel carries an external iron ballast keel over most of the length and especially reaching right forward to the rise of the stem so that any contact with a hard surface would be taken on the iron, not the wood - a thoughtful touch. In present ownership the keel bolts have been inspected. Sea-cocks removed, stripped and any dubious replaced. The strap floors are in massive angle shape wrought iron which does not rust like mild steel even if it is galvanised, side bolted to the frames which avoids the problem of corrosion of bolts through the planking. In present ownership most of the floors have been removed from the boat, epoxy tarred and replaced on a bedding compound with new bronze bolts through the frames - an exceptional job. The topsides are raised forward from the mid-ships step in the deck to give increased head-room in the forward accommodation and fitted with 3 large bronze port holes each side. Interestingly, there is a small port hole each side mid-ships in the topsides to give some light and air to the engine room. The wheel-house and after coaming are all teak with bronze port holes. The coach-roof deck is sheathed probably originally with canvas and painted with cream non-slip deck paint between varnished teak margins. The after cabin entrance from the cock-pit has a sliding hatch and twin full length doors to the cock-pit. Fastenings: the planking is fastened to the main frames with bronze dumps and to the steamed intermediates with copper nails. Close study shows the scottish way of clenching the nails rather than riveting over roves. The deck is yacht laid in solid teak which means the planking is swept round the shape of the hull and joggled into a king plank forward and aft. Traditionally caulked and payed, the planks are secret fastened to the beams. The rudder stock head projects through the aft deck with a removable bronze cap to take an emergency tiller. Steering is by traditional spoked teak wheel and cables to a quadrant on the stock under the aft deck. In present ownership new cables and tubes fitted. Cast bronze stanchion posts all round carry 2 stainless steel guard wires. A modern stainless steel pulpit and push-pit have been added for safety. The step in the deck edge in way of the gate stbd side has a cast bronze cap with the yacht's name - a lovely touch. Hefty mooring cleats fitted either side forward and aft and a cruciform cleat mid-ships by the step in the deck, essential to take a mid-ships spring when berthing and so often missing on yachts. To back up the cleats she has a massive oak sampson post on the fore deck and the aft deck and even each side at the break in the deck. A very substantial bronze fabrication over the stem spreads the loads of the chain over the twin chain rollers. An electric windlass looks slightly out of place but like other details on this yacht makes her far more practical. A cqr anchor when hauled in stows neatly on the chain roller removing the necessity to lift a heavy anchor over the pulpit. Small thoughtful details like the twin bronze fairleads on the capping both sides saves damage to the capping by mooring lines. In present ownership the deck seams have been raked out, the seams repayed with butyl rubber compound and the decks coated with semco, a wood protector and water-proofing product which has the advantage of sealing the seams against any possible leaks. Rig . A bermudian ketch rig on varnished spruce masts and spars gives a useful sail area of around 200 square feet with the headsail on a roller furler, a 2-reef mainsail and a small mizzen. Stainless steel standing rigging to internal bronze chain plates. Running back stays on tackles set up when the bpat goes to sea with main set in any weather. In present ownership the masts have been stripped and revarnished, the standing and running rigging have all been replaced and new blocks fitted. A very good, clean suit of cream sails comprising: mainsail good but not new. Mizzen good but not new. Genoa on roller furling gear as new jib excellent condition. New small loose fitted boomless mizzen serves best to weather cock the boat at anchor. Dart sails 2014 sail covers to main and mizzen. New runing rigging. Engin e.
