Nothing changes - skippering a yawl requires the "Master" to wear a tie.

Harry's yawl was always kept in immaculate condition, I wonder what happened to her?

Harrys yawl was sold to my brother in Edinburgh,then it was sold on to someone on the west coast.
There was a problem with the iron nails used on this boat,which may have eventually led to its demise.
