Tiger C

Built by Berthon and designed by H G May, 12-ton Gauntlet class, Tiger C was launched in 1939 and is constructed in carvel teak on oak with a lead keel and spruce mast.

Initially, we carried out works to include re-bedding her ballast keel and fitting new throat bolts through her iron floors, whilst at the time, leaving her owner to ‘scrape and paint’ as a very capable hands-on enthusiast.

More recently, in 2022 after spending most of the lockdown period on a mooring, or in a boatyard on the River Tamar, Tiger C returned to her home of nearby Itchenor.

We were then tasked over a three week period in the shed with repainting, re-varnishing and anti-fouling her, in readiness for the sailing season.

  • Plenty of ‘TLC’ for ‘Tiger C’ with this year’s refit… she’s a very welcome regular to the shed. Also see her write up on our ‘Projects’ section of our website.
