Notes

Originally the YACHTING WORLD KNOCKABOUT, a design which was published in Yachting World magazine.
At least 36 boats sailing by 1960. Sailed mostly at Fowey Harbor, Cornwall, UK.
There has been a recent resurgence of interest in the class and several new boats have been built by local boat builder, Marcus Lewis.
