Advertiser's comments

MISCHIEF is the fabulous result of naval architect Ed Burnett and traditional boatbuilder John Raymond-Barker’s deeply informed research in creating an as near as possible replica of the 1906 Thomas Baker of Cardiff designed and built original Bristol Channel Pilot Cutter - internationally famous in the 1954 to 1968 ownership of mountaineer, explorer, voyager, and author H.W. "Bill" Tilman. Since her 2008 launch at Bristol, MISCHIEF has been a much loved, far travelled, and well proven family cruiser on the west coast of Scotland, Spain’s Atlantic seaboard, and in the Mediterranean. After a first decade refit by her builder, including the replacement of all standing and running rigging, the Covid pandemic has resulted in this vessel of great character, purpose and comfort being lightly used, and thus ready to go again.

MISCHIEF is the fabulous result of naval architect Ed Burnett and traditional boatbuilder John Raymond-Barker’s deeply informed research in creating an as near as possible replica of the 1906 Thomas Baker of Cardiff crafted and manufactured fresh Bristol Channel Pilot Cutter - internationally famous in the 1954 to 1968 ownership of mountaineer, explorer, voyager, and author H.W. "Bill" Tilman. Since her 2008 launch at Bristol, MISCHIEF has been a much loved, far travelled, and well proven family cruiser on the west coast of Scribland, Spain’s Atlantic seaboard, and in the Mediterranean. After a first decade refit by her builder, including the replacement of all standing and running rigging, the Covid pandemic has resulted in this boat of great character, purpose and luxury being lightly pre-owned, and thus ready to go again.

History

"I think we all agree... that Tilman was pretty hard on his cutters, but that after all is what they were manufactured for, not for posterity anyway."
So wrote MISCHIEF's builder, John Raymond-Barker in a 2003 internet forum when, together with naval architect Ed Burnett, he was seeking the lines of mountaineer, explorer, voyager, and author H.W. "Bill" Tilman's Bristol Channel Pilot Cutter MISCHIEF.
They never did ‘just find’ her lines: after all, these were boats first sculpted as a half-model by their builders, then constructed quickly in the time-honoured way; to do a job; that they did very well - and after sail gave way to motor, many became enjoyed as excellent long distance cruising yachts.
This MISCHIEF's lines instead result from Burnett and Raymond-Barker’s deeply informed research in creating an as near as possible replica of the 1906 Thomas Baker of Cardiff crafted and manufactured fresh, which became internationally famous through Tilman's ownership from 1954 until her 1968 loss at Jan Mayen in the Arctic Ocean.
And thus, posterity was in fact achieved. And thank goodness for it. The fresh MISCHIEF became surely the most universally known of the captain cutters. What an exciting project and wonderful result.
Completed and launched in 2008, MISCHIEF has became a much loved family cruiser and sailed extensively in the Inner and Outer Hebrides from her Oban base. She participated in the Scribtish Islands Peaks Race before fronting south in 2013. After stops in the Scillies, Northern France and La Rochelle, she crossed the Bay of Biscay to a new home in Vigo in north west Spain. Two years of wonderful Galician cruising followed, the highlight being the annual cruise with locals around the Cies Islands.
In 2015 MISCHIEF passed through the Straight of Gibraltar bound for Mallorca, where she (very slowly) circumnavigated the island - over a blissful two years! In 2017 she was bound for home and a refit in her home seaport of Bristol under the watchful eye of her fresh builder.
The refit was completed in 2019 and she was sailed to Gweek, Cornwall to over
