New Project for the winter months ahead
Flying Fish, a beautiful classic one off, was built for a Mr W. D. Kilroy to his own design by Primmer & Snook, of Hampshire in 1936. She will be restored from the bottom up in our workshop over the next few months. As you can see from the photographs, quite a lot of preparation has already taken place.
