HISTORY & DESCRIPTION:
Harry Feltham (1886-1958) worked from the family boatyard in Portsmouth which traded under his name. The yard had an established reputation for building a wide selection of small timber vessels from dinghies to cruising yachts.
CHANTEY was built to a traditional 1930s design by Harry Feltham in 1934 of lapstrake construction having elm planks all copper fastened to steam bent Canadian Rock-Elm timbers. Varnished mahogany brightwork, thwarts and coamings.
Straight plumb stem, transom stern, lifting keel.
CHANTEY is a familiar sight at OGA meetings at Yarmouth, Isle of Wight and has been in the same ownership since 1955. She was restored in 1985 and again in 2003, going on to win the Cowes Classics in 2008. Featured in Classic Boat magazine in 1998.
