- 1942 - 1942 MFV27
The boat was originally named ST PAUL and was built for the Admiralty during WWII in 1942 as MFV27 and acted as a patrol boat around the coast of England primarily searching for German U boats and later in the Mediterranean in 1944. She was built in Looe, Cornwall, by Frank Curtis, being ordered on the 24th February, laid down on March 18th, and launched on the 28th July 1942 with a compliment of six men. She was built of larch on oak frames with a 2” larch deck. The boat undertook a significant refitting in 1993, making her into the sailboat we see today with a 54” main mast and 2245 sq.ft of sail.
