The Rossiter yard in Christchurch built Pintails and Curlews, both designed by Hugh Rossiter. The 27 ft Pintail was built from 1962, originally in wood, from 1970 in GRP, with still ample use of wood. The 32 ft Curlew was designed in 1980, the first one was built in wood, subsequent ships in GRP. In The Netherlands about 10 Pintails and Curlews have their home port.
