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.
