" Lulworth 1920 — The Restoration of the Century "  …  This classic sail yacht, built in 1920, is the world’s largest gaff cutter.  After a sailing career in the 1920’s and 1930’s, she went mostly neglected until 1990, when plans were made to do a restoration, which was completed in 2006.  See the complete and remarkable story here:
