    Yes I see that, I imagine that it could almost live on the mud OK without legs though at rather a jaunty angle

    If anyone can propose other shallow draft or centreboard traditional wooden boats around 20ft or just under that it is worth me looking at I'd be happy to hear about them.
    Finesse 21; has a shallow draft and centreplate so drying out not a problem and most of the later ones had diesel auxiliary engines from new. Gaff rig was an option.
