Recently, a old WALKER’S KNOTMASTER LOG Model KDO MARK IIIA was returned to Dorade. The Knotmaster Log model – K D O Mark III A, manufactured by Thos. Walker & Son Ltd, Birmingham, England; circa mid-20th century.
Greg Stewart of Nelson/Marek Yacht Design, Inc., the Naval Architect for Dorade and Commodore of the Ancients Mariners Sailing Society, and his follow Ancient Mariner and friend, Dave Easter, brought this
Knotmaster Log to Dorade’s attention. THANKS!!
Obtained from Susannah Ford, who runs a marine antiques business in Old Mystic, CT., the Knotmaster Log is believed to have been used on-board DORADE.
The painting of Dorade on the top of the storage box is quite nice.
