In October 2010, we were waiting to board the late ferry at Rosslare Harbour when a 4WD drew up alongside with a wooden boat on a trailer. The owners told us it was a Slaney cot, which had been built by an elderly boat-builder at Wexford Harbour Boat & Tennis Club, that it was destined for Welsh rivers (the Wye?) and that it might be its builder’s last boat.
The cot’s owner [see Comments below] saw this page and very kindly agreed to send some photographs of the cot’s builder, its construction and its Welsh home. I’ve put them on a separate page here.
structure looks viking,
It was built by Wexford’s Larry Duggan for me and is currently on the Usk
Excellent; thanks very much. I don’t suppose you’d have a photo of it in its new home that I could put up here? bjg
