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
