Fowey boat builder Marcus Lewis has this new motor launch restoration project to work on this winter, and would very much like to know more about it, if anyone can help.
He knows that the launch and was built as a towing boat in Liverpool in 1937, and has a builders plate of Burton and Fawcett, Liverpool.
It is carvel built with battens inside every seam. Unusually, the steamed ribs are in contact the battens, not the carvel planks.
The boat was Henry, but is is now named Clarence and has spent some time around Norfolk.
If you know anything about this boat and its type and can help Marcus, contact him directly or write to me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll pass the message on.
