Hi
If you know her last known name or licence number you can trace her history on Horning.org . Could the previous owner give you any info ?

Steve & Maggie.

Magellan (Westward 38)

Not quite an ancient mariner ..... though some say he was at sea before Pontius was a pilate !

An interesting mix.

Very pleasing traditional lines, but with modern alloy spars and tabernacle.

The photo viewpoint is not quite high enough to see if there are any ribs inside , so the clinker planking may be overlapping ply strip, in which case it may be a kit boat or DIY built from plans, like Selway Fisher.

Craig's database on Horning.org will only be of help if she has previously held a BA toll, and there's no trace of a reg number on the visible parts of the stern.

More photos, showing the front and square on to the stern may assist matching it up to any known drawings.

What a pretty boat!!

At this point I would GUESS that she's by Ian Proctor and is a Kestrel, 1960's.

Yacht 'Jenny Morgan'

The Broads is a member of the
National Parks family, it is
NOT a National Park though.

Hi Carl, firstly what a worthwhile project, well done for saving her, she is very pretty Smile
16 foot with a drop keel, if the centreplate is galvanised steel with a heavy, mahogany centreplate box I would guess she is one of the original Norfolk Oyster boats with the cabin added by the owner. My father owns one and the hull looks very similar. The actual length is 16'10" with 6' beam, larch on oak, copper fastened, designed by the late John Leather and in my fathers case built by the late Billy May in Potter.
Good luck with the restoration,
cheers

As JM says, a pretty boat. Will look lovely when done.

Good to see the tea mug on the side deck. A useful tool when giving her a good coat of "looking at"!
