69776 - Pthreetle

Pink wooden Mirror dinghy almost airborne in a big wave

1996

Wood kit built by Stephen Heppell on Malcolm Goodwin's jig.

This was the third of four mirrors built by Stephen Heppell . Stephen takes up the story "The first one - a standard Bell built kit, was Pootle. Then came Juliette Heppell's fast blue boat Ptwootle (two, get it?) which was spectacularly fast upwind and she sailed with her sister and then with single handed sailor Hannah Stodel, then came the pink Pthreetle sailed by Melissa Heppell who went onto 470s from there (super fast boat won lots also with next owner Emma Barry) and then finally Phourtle which was Toby Heppell's boat - he went onto 49ers and is now at Yachts and Yachting of course. All Brightlingsea boats back in the days when the town council created a Mirror Millennium garden in honour of the town's Mirror sailors!".

This boat is now available, Free to a good home

  • Sail number is 12811
  • She is of wood construction.
  • Alloy Gunter mast, (looks like a Coates Marine 14 SWG mast)
  • Sails - Harper main & jib, and there is a spinnaker
  • Laminated daggerboard and rudder blade also appears to be solid wood
  • Launching trolley.

She does however need some work doing to her before sailing.  The bulkhead at the front of the cockpit needs replacing as does the foredeck starboard side due to rot. She also needs painting and varnishing.

Editor's note - it's fairly clear from the spinnaker setup,  channel shroud fittings, laminated foils, enlarged transom scuppers, outhaul track on boom, Harper sails etc., that this boat has been raced to some extent in the past.
