Now based at West Mersea in Essex. Purchased from Paul in Derbyshire who saved her from the breaker's yard. Currently sporting what I believe to be the original mast, along with a carbon boom recycled from an I14 and an old set of dacron Alverbanks (with occasional Speed Sails jib). Undergoing winter revarnish and paint - will post some pictures when she's done.
Would be interested to hear more about her history if anyone has any info.
Now to find a new crew!

Just bought Grimley Fiendish to teach the kids how to sail. First 12 in around 10 years so need to get back to being fit....might be a struggle.
12's are for life not just for christmas.

Unfortunately, having not been sailed for a number of years Grimly Fiendish has been decommissioned.  I spent a morning boat bimbling and stripped all the fittings off her.
Bit of a sad day as she did get me back into sailing twelve again after a ten year break
