|Tit Willow Ghosting in to Cobnor.|
My friend Cee Dubbs brought his pocket gaffer Tit Willow ( Tee Dubbs) along to Cobnor. This famous little boat was designed by Chris himself and was originally intended as a half size prototype for the 30ft Steel gaffer he intended to build.
She was built in Oman, brought home in a container and featured in Water Craft magazine.
I managed to cadge a sail on her while we were there, the plan was to head for Emsworth for cream cakes, which seemed a great idea.
Tit Willow performs like a boat twice her size, she weighs in at a ton and a quarter, Cee Dubbs likes ballast, so there is nothing flighty about her although she is as nimble as your maiden aunt doing the palais glide when tacking out through the moorings. It really is amazing what he has packed into a 15ft hull.
