 History and Comments 

History 

Her present owner rescued her as a derelict in Langstone Harbour in 1980. He then set about  totally reframing her including new stem, keel and transom. She was also substantially replanked using teak, elm and pitch pine. She is copper and bronze fastened and has bronze floors. He converted her to gaff cutter rig. 

Comments

The original craft were open, half-decked. Known locally as "Sally boats", presumably because of their origins in Sallyport. The Clemens yard who built her were bombed in World War II. Their site is now occupied by Lucas Sailmakers. 

Much of the teak and pitch pine used in her rebuild was reclaimed from the Royal Marine Barracks, Eastney and the main post office, Commercial Road, Portsmouth. 

The name Pointer originates from a local term for a native of Old Hamble Point Marina.
