Tribute to Geoffrey Bowman Jenkins - Yacht 7

Bowman yacht - Yacht 7 - Spring 1952

Colin Laker looked desperately for a complete yacht 7 finding only hulls without sails, without keel...
This is the one Geoffrey Bowman Jenkins would have liked to see before he passed away.
This last wish remained unfulfilled.

I have a complete Yacht 7 in my collection.
How sad.

I like the proportion, the small size, the personalization of the child who owned it (a swallow)...
... reportedly a very badly balanced pond yacht that kept capsizing, it was only produced in small numbers.
