In the 1960s Ginder was owned and sailed by Ralph Savery. Ginder was based at Avon Sailing Club - on the Severn near Tewkesbury! I used to enter the annual open meeting and remember Ginder's transom very well. Ralph was famous for inventing the self baler which he called the 'Avon Baler'. Old Twelvers will remember these.
I don't know what happened to the boat over the intervening years but imagine my surprise when while cycling in the Berkeley Vale I came across Ginder looking rather worse for wear gracing the driveway entrance to a house at Waterend just north of Upper Framilode. She looks restorable - but I expect that there are still loads of usable Smugglers out there.
Happy Twelving, Chris

I well remember, lovingly, the Avon Bailer. At the time I thought it was a wonderful invention although I seem to recall that you had to be moving quite smartly to avoid the water coming back in! N3535 and ex-N1149.
