Launch of Prudence

A few years ago Richard Forster inherited a nice little clinker dinghy from Brian Marriott. She was used hard and put away dirty, and when it was discovered that the stem was rotten it was obviously time for her to go in the shed for a major makeover. A couple of weeks later, with Martin Kell having done the lion’s share of the work, she was transformed and ready to return to the water, but was in need of a new name – her original having got lost. Choosing names can be a dangerous and controversial thing, but with Richard’s mother visiting the solution was obvious. Prudence was able to baptize the good dinghy Prudence down at the boat ramp on Friday evening with a good shower of cider.
