    Jim Lawrence – I’ve heard he’s selling or has now sold the Wrinkle Brig and getting a Smacks Boat.

    Jim mentions that he has had two of these, I bought the first one from him and some 30 years on own it still. Though for the last 23 years it’s been on the far side of the world. New Zealand is about as far from the Essex creeks as you can get. “Native”, they both share the same name, is equally perfect for sailing here. Jim’s sailing skill and wisdom show in every detail of her set up. I will never sell her.

    Agreed. Love the solid, not too fussy set up and the history of the type. I appreciate that the balance lug rig was not used for working boats but it makes her so easy to sail and with 165 sq.ft. in the main plenty powerful enough. I have a coupe of headsails to play with but as Jim says a tiller in one hand and a rope in the other is enough to do ! She feels like a larger boat and with her ballasted 650kg weight tacks smoothly and predictably yet with a line on the tiller and little time setting her balance will hold a steady course for 20 minutes.
    Really enjoy watching your videos Dylan. I regularly revisit the early ones I have on DVD, they take me back to Essex, smacks, barges and all the great times there. Thank you for that.
