Stebbing's Yard Archive

Roach was built in at Stebbings yard in 1953 – this site is really good as it catalogues every yacht built by them and provides a great history of the yard. Apparently they were very well known for their wooden spars. I have to agree. Roach has her original elipical Douglas Fir spar; the only eliptical wooden mast I have ever seen. If you think about it, it is the best shape for a mast.
