The Whimp is a 13’6” dinghy. 
We had her built in 2000 at Southgates Horning (then NYBC) by Mike Barnes and Alan Lee. 

The mould was taken from a 1900 Broads dinghy. 
She is British racing green GRP and oiled Wood with EEC approved built in buoyancy, a LOT of buoyancy!

Whimp has a Gunter rig and Jeckells tan sails with a black cat on the mainsail. 

 This is a proper ‘Swallows and Amazon’s’ boat. 

The trailer and launch trolly was serviced by Indispension  in June 2020 when new wheels were fitted.

There is a one year old Weathermax cover, a pair of oars, ropes and rigging as shown. 
I have yet to bring the tillers and rudder over to Norfolk.

She needs some cosmetic help right now Polytrol on the hull and Deks Olje 1 on the Wood. That’s really a short work session to bring her back to where she should be. 

It is a buyer collect offer and she is lying in the Broads. 

This is a solid little boat with lots of character. 

Please pm me to discuss.
