The group aim provides a focus for the 14 foot West Wight Potter [WWP] sailing boat designed and built in England - the A, B, C, D, E and AX types. The 'files' and 'photos' areas provide information to help with sailing, maintenance and renovation.
There's lots of info on the site, so have a dig around. A lot is common to the B, C and D types, especially gunter rig. If you have a problem or cannot find what you want, shout and we'll help if we can. It's always difficult with old boats to know what's right, what's wrong, what the builder got wrong, what got lost and what somebody bodged. And there's usually plenty of the last item. Any UK WWP is now far from new and will very likely have been through (or suffered at) the hands of several owners. Modifications have almost certainly been done; not necessarily for the better, nor correctly. Changes were made during production. So regard information on this site as a guide, not a bible.
Sail your Potter for a while before making modifications. Features that seem odd to start with become clearly valuable after you live with your boat.
