Go to TopA SeaHawk (BA L888)

This is one of two boats moored in this area of very similar vintage, both of the four berth type and having brown non-slip panels on the decks. This example lacks some of the wooden fittings of the other.

On this boat, a white plastic rubbing strip not only runs along the gunwales but right around the bow as well. Fairleads are fitted from which is hung a bow fender.

On the cabin roof are a pair of mushroom vents, in the standard positions for a modern four berth example, the proof of which is seen from the spars visible in the cabin windows.

The cabin door is the two-piece type, with only the necessary lock adorning it. The rest of the back of the cabin is free of clutter too, as the jib cleats are, unusually, set in runners on the cabin side extensions.

Here detail of the jib cleat runners, main sheet horse can be seen. It is possible to make out the small hole which provides drainage to the locker. On the transom one of the two cockpit draining vents can be seen.
