Bristol Channel Pilot Cutter ‘Hilda 2’ was built by J. Cooper at Pill, near Bristol, in 1899. These vessels would sail out into the stormy Western Approaches where they would compete to win piloting contracts from approaching merchant ships. A larger hull (1” to foot). Faster than the Marguerite, this cutter has lovely lines with a deep keel at the transom end.
