HMS Gannet was a Royal Navy Doterel-class screw sloop launched on 31 August 1878. She became a training ship in the Thames in 1903, and was then lent as a training ship for boys in the Hamble from 1913. She was preserved in 1987 and is now part of the Core Collection of the UK's National Historic Fleet.
HMS Gannet (1878)
The reason Paul first came to the Chatham Historic Dockyard in 1987 was to carve the figure head for the H.M.S. Gannet, carved from Russian Pine.

During his residency at The Historic Dockyard in Chatham, Paul has welcomed any opportunity to use his skills to restore and preserve the past.  One such opportunity came when he was asked to make this sturdy base to display this fine example of marine history.
