A dear old girl - but still very sprightly. Bootlegger is not the most luxurious rental yacht on the Broads, but she has class. She doesn't have hot and cold running water... anything you need for cooking comes from a brass tap in a locker in the well... and water from washing is pumped by foot. The two notes that I made about her were that she handled well in little or no wind (not drifting off) and that she was easy under power (despite, I believe, an offset prop.) Bootlegger has a blue hull. Tim Welpton told me about a conversation that he once had with his wife Anne: He said, "I'm thinking about painting Bootlegger white." She replied, "But she's always been blue." He said, "Only for the last 50 years." A truly gorgeous boat, well worth sailing.
