My father Dr.Peter Ewart Burden re-named this boat. We nearly lost her and our lives once-sailing from Ramsgate on a halcyon day ,force 3 forecast to be caught in squall. My husband was on the tiller 7 hrs, right off course, desperately trying to keep her steady as everything broke or was swamped.My toddler son asked if we were in danger, I said No its just a bit rough he said ‘Its like being in a wooden crate bumped up and down on concrete. Dad bought her because she was Uffa Fox ‘unsinkable’ design. How right he was!!!
