Avocet under weather
by: Pierre

Hi Dick,

Thanks for your comments. Avocet is à fin keel, but it is longer than on modern boats giving her extra stability on route.
She has a hung rudder which bronze bearings were changed 2 years ago.

A Modern Classic
by: Dick McClary

Being a fan of wood-epoxy construction, if I was looking for a new cruising boat then I would definitely want to have a good look at 'Avocet of Ryme'.

Ideally for cruising, she's a cutter-rigged sloop - but would soon have a servo-pendulum self-steering gear on her stern if she became mine!

Pierre, what's her underwater configuration? Fin keel and skeg-hung rudder?
