Mr Burnett commenced construction of his Vertue in 1949 when he started lofting the hull lines, full size from offset table drawing number 852. This of course was the original sheer line prior to the addition of an extra hull plank. Laurent Giles referred to this version of the 25 footer as the 1950 Standard Version, and created many new working and detail drawings specifically updating the construction scantlings, rig design and deck arrangement for this long cockpit layout.
Wellow Maid was completed in 1949, but Burnett did not entirely follow Giles’ new drawings – electing to do without the doghouse and creating an interior arrangement of his own.
