    Yes ... a very talented and modest man (artist as much as boatbuilder, I'd say).

    Edit after looking at pictures.... I think her hull, sheerline, decks and coachroof are wonderful (if you like the HB inspired look, which I certainly do). As you'd expect from David, the craftsmanship looks absolutely top class, and I bet, if you could look around, that you'd find all sorts of exquisite 'signature' details.

    Against that, being super critical, to my eye, the mast looks too long (yes, of course, I know why it's done like that, but it slightly spoils the aesthetics in my view).

    Of course I voted for her.

    A truly stunning boat to see in the flesh, the owner is a member of our club and she was at our last rally of the summer. There has certainly been some voting by the club members!

    Why is it done like that? To be able to fly a larger spinnaker?

    I've voted too, though I agree with NealB, Polly's mast does look too long; especially being wood, doesn't it maker her a bit tender and rolly ?

    Still a lovely boat, the world would be a poorer place without many of the boats listed there.

    I now understand Polly's mast is hollow with a luff groove for the topsail, which explains everything; there's another boat for my fleet when I win the lottery !

    Probably so that a topsail can be set without the hassle of a separate topmast, or jack or jenny yards (ooh ... I do miss the language of gaff rig!).
