Liz,
You are indeed fortunate, although having owned a Windboat, I know they are a hole in the water into which you pour money.  Playful Wink  I had a look round her whilst she was at the museum  and enjoyed the nostalgia raised.

Well done Liz
I am so glad you are going to keep up the good work your father started. I put her to bed many times whilst she was at the MOB, very evocative smells and sights I had not seen or smelt since I had Springsong.
The very best of luck and I'll see you on the water ONE day.

If anyone has passed Ludham Bridge this weekend you will see Water Rail back in the water and looking beautiful (although her superstructure is still a bit sad).

Work is still on going but she should go home within a week. (managed to find an area of rot under the port aft deck unfortunately but thats for another day)

I call her the Forth Railway Bridge and I am sure anyone with a wooden boat know the feeling!

I hope to make Barton Regatta..............
and will post photos over the next few days

Credit and thanks goes to everyone at Ludham Bridge.
Found more boards with Delight VII under as did the old mattresses  including another boats name on one as well as Delight

This appears to be 'Jacqueline' which was at Martham Development.  I didn't know her history but she could be the missing 'II' which wasn't in the hire fleet in the post war catalogues as I have re read said before.

More research but would like to make contact with her current owners (soon to be replaced owners) just to find out her history before it is lost.
Liz

And a reply to a previous question - yes many of the drawers are dove-tailed!

Tis me!

I'm the new and very proud owner of "Jacqueline" after the ebay purchaser dropped out and I got a second chance at it (having made a right cock up of my bidding originally)

Jacqueline was the original Delight and was marketed as Jocelyn 1.

It not the same as the rest of the Jocelyns/Delights and when Marthams joined Hoseasons it acquired the name Jacqueline to differentiate it, at their insistance, from the rest of the Jocelyn fleet. As part of the Red Whale Fleet it was simply listed as Jocelyn 1 and the interior differences refered to within the catalogue. (No I'm not knowledgable, just the owner of a 1966 Bradbeers brochure!)

Currently named as "five by five" or something like that it will carry the name "Jacqueline" on relaunch sometime in the future.

The original interior is mostly intact especially the front cabin which is a bit of a time warp (and exactly what we wanted) although the rear is somewhat more mixed and I suspect some gentle modifications will be needed to both meet the BSC requirements as well as bring that area to a more satisfactory standard.

My planking skills are going to be tested to their limits and while typing this I'm thinking 'what have I done!' The last time I went near anything like this was close to 30 years ago and involved some planking on a Brown Boat using a steamer - sadly I remember very little although I have found some chisels and a plane in the shed, so I've made a start!! I've also bought a book on wooden boat building which has left me feeling even less confident......

Anyway, a piccy of Jacqueline taken last week...
