TW 249 ‘Puffin’

Super Tideway Puffin is a top-of-the-range wooden Super, which means that it has fore and side decks, a very pretty stern locker, gun metal fittings and slatted seats. As part of the refurb, it was given sheets, cleats and blocks that would have been in use when it was built. Puffin has lovely rowlocks made of brass: there is one for each side and one for the rear, so it can apparently be rowed from the transom — although I have not tried that. All three oars come with the boat. I bought Puffin in around 2004 from someone who had only used it on the Thames. I do not know its history before him.Puffin is a proper woody and was given a comprehensive make-over ahead of taking part in one race at the 50th anniversary in 2013. Since then, it has been raced for one season (2018), in Bosham. Built by LH Walker in 1970. See a link here to more photos. https://www.flickr.com/gp/reidambrose/r05316 Puffin comes with a very nice road trailer as well as its launching trolley. Buoyancy bags included. Sails included.

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
