I grew up next to our boatyard and as a boy spent many hours in the yard watching boats being built and helping out as required. We had a large hire fleet before the war and my brothers and I, having been used to boats from a very early age, were very used to starting hirers off in rowing, sailing and motor boats and we ourselves were always free to take any boat that was not currently hired and go wherever we wanted.
This website is the result of my desire to put on record the history of the family business founded by my father and to show some of the many boats which were built.
