60008 - Gull Force

A wooden Mirror dinghy on a driveway


Wood hull built by Bell Woodworking .

1980 - 2000?

Sailed by Denis Surridge, a long time supporter of Mirrors and the Mirror Class Association. May have taken on a role in the association at some point. Richard Surridge tells us this boat was, he believes, his third, and his dad and uncles all learnt with him in the 60s.

This boat was advertised for sale for £200 , details were:

I have been given the task of selling my grandfather’s Mirror. I believe he bought it in 1980 and he sailed it regularly for the rest of his active life. He looked after it carefully throughout that time.
