Wherry yacht Hathor (pronounced Har-Tor) is an astonishing craft. Built by Daniel Hall of Reedham in Norfolk for members of the local Colman family famous for manufacturing dried mustard in 1905, she’s highly decorated in the then-fashionable Egyptian style – and might just give modern-day boatbuilders a few ideas about decorations for their own projects.
She’s definitely worth a visit if you’re in the area, but check with the Wherry Yacht Charitable Trust, as I understand she’s currently in for a refit.

Looks like you'll have to lift your game in boat design!
"Sailing Julie skiff with inlaid Egyptian style motifs" has a quite a ring to it I think.
Love it. Has me thinking about motifs for my next canoe. Cubist? Surrealist? Federalist?
