Another Itchen Ferry

I've posted about the Itchen Ferry before, a local traditional Solent boat, of which alas there are all too few remaining today .

The best known builders in the 19th century were Alfred Payne and Dan Hatcher. I don't know much about this boat, but she certainly looks like an Itchen Ferry.

Alice has a sweet transom, I've seen her out on the water but this is the first time I've seen her close up. She is decked over and has a chimney that suggests she will has snug accommodation down below.
