Commissioning Owner, K.G. Miller's Comments

Senechal II was Raymond Wall's design in answer to my request for a cruising vessel, free of racing influences and yet one which was stiff, fast, strong and handy.   I asked him to incorporate a host of my own ideas, including a symmetrical internal layout, free of bulkheads, entirely open from end to end with a Blake on the centreline, forward. Four berths are provided, but in a vessel only 22ft on the water line I anticipate seldom filling more than three berths at once, the fourth being better given over to stowage. There is a 3ft 6in chart table to take full sized Admiralty chart laid flat, opposite which is a 3ft 6in galley. ....

One construction requirement was an embargo upon soft pellets, brass fastenings and mahogany, all of which I regard with suspicion.  Secondly I asked for all built-in or important metal fittings to be non ferrous, galvanised iron fittings being used only in surface positions or where they can easily be replaced.
