XOD “Little X” New owner Chris Smith

Friday 22 January 2016

1961 XOD Little X undergoes a full restoration and sails for the  first time after sitting at the back of the Whittle Marine  shed  for three years. She started the 2015 season in style, with her North rig, a simple Whittle Marine deck  fit out, her dashing bright work in gloss white with metallic limestone grey boot top & coveline sits beautifully well with her classic lines.

She is just as impressive inside after having replaced all her midsection copper fastenings, now holding her tightly together for another 54 glorious Years.

New Owner Chris Smith has preserved this little boat and a part of this historic class for  many more years to come!
