Many thanks to Sue, Dave and Lewis Whillier who came down from Surrey to see us this week in the her new home of Boat house number 4 in Portsmouth Historic Dockyard
As avid supporters of the Lively Lady, they kindly presented us with a lovely Bagely painting of her on the high seas. The painting used to belong to Sue’s late father Den Harrington who loved sea fishing and this painting used to be hung in his hall.
Lewis was excited to get on board and have a look around. Young Lewis was a little wary when he first came on board, but once he had got hold of the camera there was no stopping him I’m looking forward to his photo’s I think we might have found our next photographer for the project. Both Dave and Lewis are into wood work and Stuart seemed to enjoy being able to pass on his knowledge of wooden boats and their construction.
Below with the deck off gives a really good idea of the size and living conditions aboard.
