Grey dawn
by: Anonymous

She was built by my grandfather.

Not a production boat.

She was what they call a converted lifeboat with cork floatations built into the sides.

I don't think it is the boat you describe.

Regards anyway and thanks for the response.

Grey Dawn by Westlawn
by: Hal

I saw your posting on https://www.diy-wood-boat.com/westlawn-greydawn-series.html

40 odd years ago, I owned a grey dawn 42' ketch designed by Westlawn.

It might have been the same boat.

It was named "Sundrift" at the time.

V-bottom, nearly flat, with a centerboard and lots of interior space.

If it is the same boat I may have some info for you.

Can you send me a picture of her?

Please let me know.

My uncle had a converted lifeboat called Grey Dawn.

She was Ketch-rigged and had cork floats on either side.

She was from Barry, S. Glam. Jonescan55@yahoo.ca
