Orca has now been sold. Thanks to those who looked and contacted me.
Orca was built by Jack and Mike Hockaday of Noss Mayo in 1980 to a very high standard and she has stood the test of time very well.
With a simulated clinker GRP hull and predominantely Iroko fit out she is 21' LOD, 7' 2" Beam, and with cast Iron foil section centre plate draws 20" or about 4'10", so she can easily take the mud.
She is 3/4 decked with a short bowsprit and the choice of 3 headsails which set on a rotastay furler, along with the high peak gaff, which has been hollowed out make her a delight to sail. The 3.3 hp long shaft 2 stroke outboard effortlessly pushes the hull along.
She has 2 berths in the forecabin and a boom up tent for the adventurous. There is a buoyancy tank in the bow and the stern with buoyancy built in under the floor boards. She has been stored under cover during the winter for at least the last 20 years.
I can let you have more details and photos of this very elegant boat.
