Stuart transitional found behind a shed

 When Dave in London moved to a new house he didnt expect to find an old board behind the shed - but here it is. And not just any old board , its a transitional rare gem from St Ives made in the late 60s by Pete Moony McAllum. This was Pete's first label after arriving from New Zealand , and is very rare. The first Stuarts were full blown V bottoms in the Bob McTavish style, and then they moved to to rolled bottoms with  narrower tails much like this one, most had elongated Greenough inspired fins. There are only 5 or 6 Stuarts known about at the moment so Dave made a good discovery. Will be nice to see it once the warpaint and the foliage is cleaned off !
There will be a Stuart at the Endless Summer Truro museum show.
