Tom -

Thanks for posting that.   An interesting history, especially the restoration - http://tulasendlesssummer.com/the-ship/   Do you know why she had core problems at the stern?   Also, it looks as though you may still have the original Proctor mast, but a wooden boom?

So many differences from the Victoria completed yachts.   Interesting to see 4 portlights each side.

If you manage to find out any more of her past then please post.

Jonathan,

The owner I bought her from indicated that rain water leaking through an engine hatch and the cockpit drains started rot in the core. Apparently the vessel was abandoned for so long in the boat yard, that by the time the previous owner got to her, the whole of the after part of the cockpit needed to be replaced.

As for the port lights, they don't look original. I have no idea about the mast, though the wooden boom is kind of neat. Though the topping lift and stack pack need to be re-rigged.

The boat looks as if she has had several owners that all put effort into her, but made major modifications to her. The title says Frances 26, but the hull identification number is wrong for that and all of her major construction aspects are in line with a Victoria 26. At this point based on the preponderance of evidence, she's a Victoria 26. 

Not that is matters much to me, I think she's just beautiful.

Re: Member's Boats Photo Gallery

Hi folks,

I am hoping to add a photo of 'Anitra' but I don't seem to have any 'controls' to allow me to do so?

I have looked at the instructions for adding a photo, but I can't see anywhere that gives me the option to upload a photo?

Anyone any ideas?

Kind regards,

Charlie.

Hi Charlie

send it to me at web@victoriashadow.co.uk and I'll upload to the server and give you the link to embed in your text.  Or send me the whole thing and I'll upload that.
