The Boy John is a Scottish trawler built in the 1950s and ended up sailing into neck of the woods after a mysterious and suspect trip aborted halfway from Morocco…

We brought it up the river to our yard and have winched it above the high water mark. It now acts as a beach bar and clubhouse to our sailing club. Apart from all the adventures bringing it here we have also built a new wheelhouse, a new higher cabin roof and are trying every trick in the book to waterproof the deck.
