Able Mabel

Able Mabel
Name: Able Mabel
Boat Owner: Robert Wallis
Designer: Holman & Pye
Builder: Roger Harwood

Able Mabel has been to every wooden boat festival since launched by renowned local boat builder Roger Harwood in 1996. It is almost entirely Huon Pine and was built as a comfortable boat for his family. It is a typical english 4 tonne 1960’s design as a Twister class which had a very successful racing record. There are not many of this class in Australia and she has been recognised as a Twister by travelling Englishmen. The Holman and Pye design evolved as a larger version of the Danish folk boat design. We would love to continue her tradition of attending every wooden boat festival.
