V 99 Corio Vertue

Corio Vertue was owned for many years by Andy Indrans who ran a successful website about her adventures.



This profile drawing shows the hull and deckworks correctly but Corio Vertue has a single spreader metal mast with a simple masthead rig and no inner forestay.  This is more like the rig found aboard the grp Vertue II’s, as shown below:
