WANTED

Tideway Yard (Spar) for my 1964 wooden Tideway. If anyone knows of a yard in good condition and available at a reasonable cost (including gooseneck, brass channel etc.) I would love to hear from them.

Tideway 14

New Tideways (which are 12ft long) are being built as orders arise, however relatively few of the Tideway 14s have been built, either in Traditional Mahogany on oak clinker, or in GRP. I am hoping that the building of new Tideway 14s can be restarted. To make this economically viable and to spread the development cost, it would be beneficial for there to be a number of orders, perhaps 3 boats. If anyone is interested in ordering a new Tideway 14, both I and the licenced builders would like to hear from you.

Determination of a Tideway dinghy.

Q. Is my boat a Tideway?

A. Each year there are boats brought to our attention which, while very nice 12ft dinghies in their own right, and which owners or prospective owners have been told are Tideways, are not. Sometimes photographs are enough to establish the provenance, and sometimes an inspection of the boat is required. Essentially there are a few basic tests.

  • Tideways have only been built by a limited number of boat builders – L H Walker, Tepco, The Watershed, The Boatyard, Tideway Dinghies and Good Wood Boat Co.

  • Tideways will comply with the measurements laid down in the Class Rules and the certification measurement sheet for the purposes of registration of a sail number, and will be constructed either of mahogany planks on oak ribs, or GRP

  • Boats will have either 11 (typically) or 12 (earlier wooden Tideways) planks.

  • Tideways have a steel centreboard plate controlled by a lifting tackle – not a dagger board – and the casing does not extend beyond the aft of the centre thwart.

  • Tideways will have either a gunter or a bermudan rig with the mast stepped into the forward thwart – no other rigs are within the Class Rules. Sails are not loose fitted, but are on bolt ropes fed into grooves on both the gaff and the boom.

  • Tideways have a distinctive profile with a rising prow.

  • The aft edge of the foredeck (if fitted) is straight.

  • They always have a skeg
