The 160-year old Dan Hatcher-built Itchen Ferry boat Wonder has turned up at Faversham in Kent.
Bursledon Blogger Max put up a post about her when she came up for sale, but I was perhaps just a little slow to make the connection with the ‘foreign’ boat I noticed in a local boatyard some months ago. But when I saw her on the water a few days ago, the connections came together. Hoorah! At least I got there in the end.
The Solent’s loss has been our gain, and it’s great to have her in our sailing area. I hope she has many happy years with her new owner, and among our favourite creeks.
