32. An update on the replica Pilot Cutter Pellew

This episode I visit the massively impressive new Pilot Cutter being built in Cornwall, UK. She is named the Pellew, and is a replica of the 68′ Falmouth Pilot Cutter Vincent, which was built in St Mawes in 1852. I have a conversation with Luke Powell, Project Manager and Chief Shipwright, about their progress since last time I visited the project 6 months ago. We discuss the enormous mast that is currently being made, and also the challenges of managing a project of this size and scope.


For more background on the build of the Pellew, and the history of Pilot Cutters, see my earlier video about the project.

Or visit the official website of the project.

  1. Excellent vid, Leo. Pellew’s scantlings are massive! She’s a BIG girl. Check out the size of her knees, for example. She’s a very impressive build. Thanks for the update.
