  History  
 
Gothro Phil29/04/2012In a NW gale she developed a leak, which quickly enlarged in excess of her pumping capacity, and sank near the breakwater. Two tugs stood by to take her crew off, but it was later found that neither had rescued her skipper. An unusual vessel, reportedly built of pine and pointed at both ends, with hull planking set diagonally.
