Zinnia

Ed Burnett is developing the idea of the English Cutter with great results. Zinnia is the first of his 30 footers, one more is in commission, and a third being built. There is also a 35 footer of similar type being built at present. They don't look utterly different from their predecessors, but the use of modern design and materials - its still wood, but epoxy strip plank - transforms the performance by comparison with, say, Lone Wolf. And that without compromising seaworthiness, Zinnia has an Atlantic circuit to her name. Those bronze fitting must have been OK, then!
