General Description:
Replica of typical clinker-built rowing punt/yacht tender from Cork harbour in the mid 20th. century
Any other information.
This replica of a clinker-built rowing punt/yacht tender is typical of Cork harbour in the mid 20th. Century, where a number of boat-builders were turning out this type of craft on a regular basis before the advent of GRP. In contrast to other ports on the south coast clinker building was very popular in Cork Harbour, probably because of the Royal Navy influence. Repair of the existing boat [see Gallery] was not feasible so a replica was built from new by the boat-yard staff at Meitheal Mara in 2010.

This lovely 12ft punt was rescued by the staff at Meitheal Mara a few years ago, but when the owner requested a repair be carried out the boat was unfortunately too far gone. All is not lost however as the present owner agreed to a complete rebuild and this work has been completed at the Meitheal Mara Boatyard at Crosses Green.
