Nice Pair

I've always liked Godolphin, the wooden motor boat on the right, she sits on the moorings opposite the park in Lymington with that big winch, presumably for hauling some kind of fishing gear.

There's something very timeless about the raised foredeck, the safe and cosy shelter over the steering position, yet open and spacious connecting the crew with the surroundings.  Very typical of pre war boats of this type and size.

That the overall design works well is perhaps reflected in the new GRP boat lying just astern.

  1. Oh I do like a raised deck. I'm a bit partial to a Rossiter.
