Dixons mainly built work and fishing boats and we believe that Pandora was based on a proven small fishing boat design. Pandora is in very good condition, especially considering her age, and has no structural problems. She is currently sitting on an excellent Snipe galvanised break-back trailer that has not been immersed.
Prospective buyers should be aware that Pandora has been out of the water for about two years and needs to be sympathetically re-launched so that she "takes up".

Carvel built wooden boats and tall ships are made by fixing planks to a frame so the planks butt up against one another. The framing gives a carvel construction a stronger hull, meaning it can carry a full sail plan, and can have a longer and broader hull. Clinker built vessels are lighter because they have less internal framing, meaning they move faster because they displace less water. This 14ft clinker-built sailing dinghy close to the main exit (and entrance) at the Southampton Boat Show will have been quite a relief for eyes suffering from shiny-white GRP-fatigue.
She was built by Stirling & Son, and is of mahogany on oak with copper and bronze fastenings. We were away during the show, but I gather Will Stirling and his small team also took a 12ft rowing dinghy built to the same specification, and were selling sets of plans and five postcards of boat building work that no doubt were taken by the same hands that took the shots above.

Nice and sturdy, very stable and yet fast and manoeuvrable, she is three-quarter decked in epoxy-sheathed ply, leaving a very roomy yet secure cockpit in the middle. OWNERS COMMENTS HISTORY The Sea Ranger, a 12 foot clinker, gunter-rigged, general purpose dinghy, has been the Gunfleet Sailing Club s traditional one design class since the Club was formed in 1961. She's a clipper-bowed cutter, built in 1899 by Johan H Selden, Orust, Sweden, as a lottery boat for the sailing society Viken of Uddevalla, at a price of 333 Euros. She has recently undergone a refit, including repainting and re-varnishing and is ready for the 2011 season. Accommodation is cramped and her interior is in original condition which means that some cosmetic attention would be of benefit. In a Carvel construction a smooth hull is created, that is stronger than a clinker built hull. She has one sail that can be rigged as a standing or balanced lug sail.The boat comes complete with a pair of oars, cover, one sail, two masts plus rudder dagger board etc. She has been used as a day boat with the grand children, who are now grown up, hence my reason to sell. Choice of the simple and efficient unstayed lug rig or the more complex Gaff rig with bowsprit. I built it according to the glued lapstrake (clinker) method with 4mm okoume marine plywood.
She was originally named Snorre, then had many different ames and owners, but Hild has turned up many times and suits both her and me fine. With mahogany hull, spruce mast, bamboo spars, lug sail, four oars and centreboard, she provides for expeditions in our nearby archipelago. However more caulking is required between the joints in carvel than in a clinker construction. Whisper was built by my son who studied at the Lime Regis International School of boat building.
Although the boats get spread out, there is a tendency for all to come into very close proximity at the marks, especially the downwind mark, which makes life very interesting.
Hild was the unbeatable walkiria in old Nordic mythology, an appropriate name for a boat that has survived 112 years. Please note that Pandora is not suitable as a trailer-sailer and a mooring is preferable to keep her tight. She draws very little with the centre board raised and is very suitable for use in shallow waters.
