    Thanks, she's an Osprey. 17ft 6" x 5ft 9".

    In a flask, in advance...although there's room on the floor for a stove, if the motion permits.

    Teeny danforth, masses of space ahead of the mast below the foredeck. I could fit a couple of slim blondes in there.

    Easy to see the original lines of the earlier wood Mk1 boats, pre-GRP. Mine's a Mk2, probably hull 937 from the very early 1970s.

    1973, 19ft x 6ft, much more luxurious; has compass, tent, stove, kettle and a CQR clone. Oh, and no centreboard case.

    No prob! With a bit of PBO ingenuity, you could put a small cabin on that make it a proper cruiser 'al a Charles Stock'
    I, don't understand what is holding you back..

    Why did I never think of that? I did start out feeling that way. I suppose with the basic skills I've learned since buying her, I could devise a sleeping-cuddy. But after reintroducing me to sailing, reefing, rowing, anchoring, inshore navigating and general maintenance, it's only now that I'm exploring what Ian Proctor designed to her provide - nice conventional planing dinghy performance...

    ...so I believe I'll buy a dedicated cruiser for cruising, and keep the Osprey doing what she does so well. But I'll always be glad she wasn't designed in the ugly angular uncompromising style of newer dinghies, too extreme to stay upright afloat if unattended.

    PS, I love the Squib, Minn.

    Always have done, and I thought about getting one. I couldn't face being unable to access shallow water and dry out, though.

    Has anyone got a piccie of Greensleeves ?

    One of Roy Harts collection on the East Coast. It is a dragon hull with a gaff rig mast and bowsprit. Look lovely.

    Right there on Google.

    Edit: doesn't look a lot like a Dragon hull! Doesn't look a lot like GRP either.

    Lots of nice GRP 'classics' in this thread. This is mine, a Peter Brett Rival 41C built by Southern Boat Building at Woolston in 1973.
