Having just about finished my light restoration of a Lewis "Tern" (K924 pictured) , I have got back a bit of enthusiasm for 6 metre boats. Due to a change in interests within my club, these graceful boats have been replaced in favour by the DF95 which is probably a more convenient size for most members. Just before a weeks holiday , I put a bid on a boat on Ebay that I had noticed previously being sold as a Marblehead, but being described as 55 inches long, obviously wasn't. The seller then replaced the ad with one querying that the boat might be a 6 metre which looked more on the mark. He was asking for offers on his starting price and in a moment of weakness ( beware late night Ebay viewing) I put in a quite low bid. To cut a short story even shorter, she is now mine to collect when I have the opportunity. Will be interesting to see how close she comes to being a 6m. If anyone has any inkling as to design or origins of the boat, comments would be welcome
