    When the mast of the pilot cutter ‘Cariad’ (formerly owned by the late Frank Carr) was lifted out at Exeter in 1970 there was a half-crown coin adhering to the mast step.

    Editor’s note:
    Cariad was launched at Pill, near Bristol, in 1904, and has recently been restored to full sailing ability. More about this lovely vessel can be read at their website: http://www.cariad.org
