Thanks for that :

Nice programme, lovely presenter !

It is a Pembrokeshire which we saw in new year, they are about in Wales used for recreational rowing but have been superseded by the current boat coming out of Dale Marina.

The Pembrokeshire Longboat first built in 1979 was the forerunner of the Celtic Longboat. Pembrokes are slightly smaller than the Celtic but are just as fast. Clubs purchased bare hulls and then fitted them out themselves ...

A thing of beauty is a joy for ever !

Whatever the vessel so good to be afloat !

Cheers
