History

  • Believed to be one of four smaller boats built by Gilcraft around this time.
  • This is supported by an entry in the Victorian Ship and Builders boat register.
  • http://www.boatregister.net/Builders_Victoria_2010.htm
  • This register shows four boats built by Gilcraft Boats which includes Mischief.
  • Also listed is Wauchope renamed to Merlyn and now Daisy, which is on the couta boat register.
  • The other two are Gull and Melani.

We purchased Mischief in 2005. At the time I was not aware that the boat was in fact a C B. I was looking for a seaworthy fishing boat. Once the deal had been concluded the seller told me about the sails and mast. Once I took delivery I realised what I had bought.

Photo shows Mischief with her smaller fishing mast. I had this mast made up for ease of fishing. Original main mast, gaff and sails are safely stored. Boat is very stable and a great fishing boat. We have had some very good catches, though I must admit not the namesake couta.
