Peggy the coble

There’s something wonderful and graceful about the coble Peggy. There are some boats I could look at for hours, and she’s one of them…

From the NE Maritime Trust website, I learn Peggy was built at Amble in 1924, and was sold first to Beadnell, then Seahouses. Later she moved to Amble and Hartlepool, from where she was bought by an NEMT member.

Now she has been extensively restored with a lot of the work being done at South Shields by Fred Crowell. Fabulous stuff…
