A recent arrival on the river, or at least I hadn't spotted her until recently Lady Belle is a Gaff Yawl built by Harley Mead in Cowes during 1909.
Commissioned by an RCC member with a strong influence from the Falmouth quay punt. By the early noughties she was in poor condition but fortunately rescued and restored and now raced regularly in Solent OGA events.
