58929 - a project

A wooden Mirror dinghy in a garage with the topsides above deck level cut away 


Wood hull built by Brian Daw , raced at Llandegfedd Reservoir, Pontypool.


This boat was ad vertised for sale free to a good home , details were:

My dinghy Mirror 58929 is complete, but is in need of new topsides. I have struggled to uncover part of the boat to take some pictures to give a feel for the damage. The main problem is the rotten sides particularly the gunwales. I am not looking for any money for the dinghy, more an alternative to scrapping it including spares.

Complete with

  • spars (metal Gunter mast, gaff, boom)
  • rudder, centre board
  • sails including spinnaker and Roy Partridge racing sails (editors note - probably sails measured by Roy Partridge).
  • Some ropes and elastic ties need replacing.
  • There is a launching trolley and also a road trolley which needs reassembling. .
