On a recent visit to the Isle of Wight, saw this moulded wood dinghy hanging in a farm barn, I cant remember the company who was well known for this type of construction, any ideas?

Simon is dead right, it is a Fairey Duckling.

Many many many years ago (late 50's - early 70's) my father worked for Fairey Aviation in Hayes and then Heston Middlesex. Several times a year and for special occasion like when Peter Twist broke the world speed record in a Fairey Delta 2 and when he won races in the Fairey Hunstsman boats they would hold parties for the employees children. At one of these they had a Ducling hull to look at, it used the same form of construction as the Huntsman, to show how light and strong the construction was.

The boats were built at Hamble so that hull hasn't gone far  Playful Wink .

Here's a link to some more info:-

Hope you find it interesting.

I'd love to own a Fairey Huntsman, but don't have deep enough pockets!

John.

I'm with John on the Huntsman, which is on my "wish list". But they also built the Atalanta & I don't know what they were smoking when they designed that one Playful Wink

Thank you for the feedback, of course! Fairey Duckling, I may just pluck enough courage to try and find out if it is for sale.
