Pig in a Poke

It's A 'Pig In A Poke'

The pictures in this section are examples of 'What to steer clear of'' and 'What have given ferroboats a bad name'

'Blot on the landscape'. (guess which was the designed waterline)

'About as bad as they come'. (what else is there to say !)

'Concrete worms ?' (no....probably salt in the sand mix)

'Junk'..not just the rig !! a disaster waiting to happen. An amateur has fitted unstayed masts in a hull originally designed by Hartley's for stayed masts, and has the audacity to still call it a Hartley !!
