This is a lightweight double sculling gig built in 1928 by Denham Brothers of Sandown on the Isle of Wight.
She has a rich history and was fully restored to 'as new' condition in 2001. The work included 5 new planking strakes stem-to-stern and a further two half planks spliced in together with a small section of garboard. Some eight new timbers or ribs were steamed in and much of the nail and rove fastening was all replaced.
Two original timbers remain, the balance having obviously been the subject of some restoration work in the 1960s. Seven new grown oak knees were fitted to the thwarts, and a section of the port bow gunwale was spliced and replaced due to a fracture. Otherwise the fabric is well-mellowed original.
A photographic record of the work and all invoices bills and costs associated with the restoration accompany of 'You and I' are part of her history file. Shewas sold by Bonhams (see photo) in their Traditional Craft & Maritime sale in 2004.
