Philippa : Professional Restoration
Philippa is one of the 'Cooper 6 tonners' to be found on this website, mainly because of the Albert Strange influenced design of Major AM Bellingham. She received professional attention in 2013, with many big tasks taken on and resolved. See the link to Rutherford's Boatyard for more detail and photographs. They report that she was shipped to Canada in 1975. I've identified a few previous owners from the Lloyd's Registers to help with the 'unknown' history.
