"Edith Gray" Fast, Bristol Channel Pilot Cutter
With her Pilot cutter pedigree, deep keel, low freeboard and substantial Gaff Cutter Rig, "Edith Gray" is a fast, comfortable and capable boat.
Spacious and powerful, ...a boat to cross oceans in.
“Mischief” is our replica of the 1906 Bristol Channel Pilot Cutter originally built by Thomas Baker of Cardiff. She was made famous by the Explorer and Writer, HW (Bill) Tilman.
We are keeping busy with some interesting projects; But there is always time for a new build.
A quick and handy Pilot Cutter like “Edith Gray”, or something larger and faster to leave the opposition standing, and bring home the silverware!!
We build traditional boats using traditional techniques with pride and care. What can be more satisfying than a beautifully crafted wooden boat?
These boats were usually manned by one man and an apprentice in addition to the pilot, and often went seeking ships hundreds of miles out into the Atlantic
