Rosanna, a one-off gaff yawl built in 1960 by Everson & Sons of Woodbridge, was being lifted out for her annual maintenance as we went to press. Ten years after local tugman Dan Cross bought her for ?1 to save her from the scrapyard, Daniel Adamson, one of Britain’s two remaining ‘tug tenders’, will return to public service on her old haunts around the rivers Mersey and Weaver, and the Manchester Ship Canal, in 2015.
They were once a common sight on the Norfolk coast, but today it’s thought there might be only one or two left in commission.

Soon after her launch, Maurice Griffiths redesigned the sail plan from cutter to yawl, as her owner found her “a little too much”.
Since 2004, 80 volunteers and 500 members of the Daniel Adamson Preservation Society have spent 90,000 man-hours, aided by thousands of pounds’ worth of grants, restoring the pair of two-cylinder compound condensing engines (500hp each).
Now, Rescue Wooden Boats, a heritage charity set up in 2010, is building a new one for a private client.
She’s the personal project of shipwright Jon Bray, who learned his trade under Ashley Butler, with some welcome help from apprentice Mike Snell. She’s a Belfast Lough One-Design (BLOD), one of nine built and three remaining, and all named after birds.
She was drawn by Stephens Waring in Maine, who has been responsible for many lovely SoT creations.

Now she’s a “sturdy vessel and a delight to sail”, said John, who rebuilt her between 2001 and 2007.
However, the boiler must be reconditioned and steel hull plates beneath it replaced before ‘the Danny’ can return to service.
She’s 16ft 10in (5.1m) long and traditionally built in larch clinker planks on oak frames, with a grown oak stem.
The gaff cutter is inspired by several Cornish working boats and evolved through a number of half-models.
Tern was built in 1897 by John Hilditch of Carrickfergus, near Belfast, and bought recently by an anonymous owner who wishes to race her, once restored, in the Mediterranean. The runabout, although designed in homage to the likes of Hacker, and built comparatively traditionally (three layers of planking on sawn mahogany frames, all soaked in epoxy), is quite a modern beast, with a constant deadrise hull and chine flats below the surface. This year, the job list is a little longer than usual, as John is going to rent out his house, move onto Rosanna, and do some serious British cruising. The Earl of Derby, the Lord Mayor of Liverpool and MP Louise Ellman were among those who made a tour of the ship to celebrate her first decade of salvation.
Auk, as she will be named, resembles a Viking craft but has one concession to modernity, which is the use of Sikaflex on the lands – the originals used pitch pine and horse hair for sealant. The work, which started in July 2013, is well advanced – the hull, cockpit and coachroof are finished, with the spars well on their way.

Above water, she sports twin bucket seats up front (again, traditional) but in the aft cockpit there’s a more modern set-up with longitudinal bench seats that fold up to form a sun lounger.

The heyday of the original crabbers was the 19th century, when they were used to tend crab pots under sail. She’s larch on oak, bronze-fastened with an opepe deck, traditional pole mast, a 3.2-tonne external lead keel and Appledore roller reefing. Tern is racing successfully towards a planned August launch and the idea is to mark the beginning of the next phase of her life by racing at Les Voiles de Saint-Tropez this autumn.
