    Boat Name: Stormy Petrel
    Location: Gillingham, Kent GB
    Make: Other
    Year: 1890
    Category: Sail
    Class: Antique and Classics


    The smacks (or yawls as they are also known) of Whitstable were as common as the Essex smacks but far fewer survive. They were built heavy to take the ground on the sandbanks of this part of the lower Thames estuary. Stormy Petrel, for instance is 25 tonnes, at 40ft (12.2m) LOA, while the longer 48ft (14.6m) LOA My Alice, from Essex, weighs 18 tonnes. Their scantlings were much larger, says Dick, and they had evolved that way to be working in the open sea in all weathers. Some, like The Favorite, were a bit finer with a counter stern of an Essex smack but Stormy’s stern is like a kind of knuckle counter, though she has the through rudder post. Built on an elm keel, the smack, with her designated fishing number 71FM (Faversham) Built by master shipwrights Dick and Charlie Perkins and fished until 1928. She has a pitch pine bottom timbers and oak topsides with 3in (76mm) thick oak binn wales at the turn of the bilge so she can lie on her bottom. Her deck is straight yellow pine/larch, new Balau hardwood was used for her deck beams and covering boards. When she was built she was bronze fastened, and it was the practice to do that, Dick says. But I rather suspect that was because the Naval Dockyards at Chatham were turning to iron and steel ships and so they were selling off their old bronze. Engineless, gear? ” nothing technical”….a compass and a lead line….. Traditional galvanised wire standing rigging, tan working canvas sails, carries a topmast too. Wintered on a mud berth.
