Our Daddy

 

FY 7: 45' built in Looe 1921 by Dick Pearce for the J E Pengelly family for £435 and skippered by his son Alfred John. She fished for some 65 years in the pilchard, mackerel and later shark fishing industries.

She was the last sailing lugger to work out of Looe and is owned by Mike Darlington and Stuart Murray. She has been re-built as a yacht with Dandy rig and is used for charter.

Mike, who fished on the boat with the legendary Alfred John Pengelly said: `A J told me: "One day, she will be yours." But he forget to say it would take 21 years...'

Seen here at Looe Lugger Regatta with Britannia (Grace).
