James McIlraith told me about a large Gauntlet he had seen in Balvicar, W. coast of Scotland, whose rig had been converted to a ketch, and with a varnished teak hull. He didn't know the name of the boat.
I have now found a photograph of this boat at St. Kilda. Thanks to Colin Wilson for allowing me to use this photo. In the full resolution version of the image it is possible to make out her name - Maiden Light.
