    Such clean-lined elegance
    that back end is even better than Shemarons !

    Think you're starting a battle of opeenions
    Personally I most of all like the Weatherhead stern as per Shemaron, Ann Marie and my old MA
    But the Noble - Girvan stern takes some beating too
    Always think the Miller boats have more of an arse than a stern ... more womanly perhaps?
    think this was them getting the tlc all the ringers of the day got,nothing like the rough prawners we've got today. :crazy2:

    -where did it all go wrong?-from this to the shoeboxes we have now. i`ll throw my hat in the ring my preference is the miller arse!-can`t beat a canoe stern ringer-just class. although weatherheads stern was smart too-we probably had every ringer stern going in burtonport-including the old zulu ringer.-absolutely cracking pic-even the legs can hardly be seen -they are that well painted. :crazy2:
    The Millers boats were the best ringers to lie to a net with a breeze of wind.
    weatherhead boats would throw there big arses into the net
