Theres a sunken ex Windboats 'Merrywind' near to me, and it fascinates me to think of all the happy holidays people have had on her, as they say 'How the mighty have fallen'!!

Hi Tom

I've got this - I haven't got a clue what it is/was - just a very sad sight to see!

This one at Toad Hall is a well known wreck. A friend of mine remembers hiring this boat years ago.

Harry May has got a few "project boats" moored up at Maycraft as well.

Harry MAy had a fairly reasonable old river cruiser a few years back, for which he was asking reasonable money... it would have been a heck of a project though! I think 'project' sums up most of his frontage!!

The story with the wherries being sunk is quite a sad one Julia.

As many of the wherryman signed up or were called up in war time the boats were deliberatley sunk - this is actually a good way of preserving them. The belief at the time was that they would be refloated and recovered when the war was over.

The sad part is that many of the whererymen didn't return of course, and those who did found there was no longer a commercial market for their vessels and so they were left where they were.

It is a considerable point of debate as to whether there are any sunken hulls which would still be in any kind of shape to recover today. The general concensus seems to be no, though it is not impossible that one or two lurk around waiting.

Regards

Paul
