Norfolk film maker Jonno of Big Sky Productions has written up the process of installing on new keel to the underside of the magnificent White Moth, a Norfolk wherry built for pleasure purposes in 1915. It all started with propping the boat up and sawing off most of the old keel – read all about it here!
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.
