Gena is a fine electric canoe built more than 100 years ago, and restored in the late 1980s by her owner Robin Newlands. All the fittings, equipment and motor are original, except the controller, which was modernised in 1923.

Also, take a look at the Thames Vintage Boat Club site – its members have put up many of pictures of their boats and some articles :
