Heather Belle

Heather Belle
Name: Heather Belle
Boat Owner: Andrew Wilson
Designer: Lyle Hess
Builder: Andrew Wilson

The plans used to build Heather Belle showed a Marconi cutter rig, however I preferred the alternate gaff cutter rig derived from the original concept boat “Renegade”.
I was attracted to the traditional character of the gaff rig, which traces back to the Bristol Channel Pilot Cutter type on which the Hess design was based.
