Hi Ciderlout.

My mother took the following photo on her mobile phone about 4 weeks ago. Is this the boat that you have seen.

Either way additional better quality pictures would be good to see.

Hi

I'm looking for a little history of a boat I know very little about.    My wife's best friend grew up (in the 1950's & 60's) on a ex MTB like boat.  The boat was based in Wivenhoe and was called Medina at the time and the family name was Rowley.  Later Medina was sold and I believe went to live on the Thames.  Other than that I know nothing about where she is now.   Sue now lives in Canada so I will ask for some more detail, but it would be a nice surprise for her aged Mum to know where Medina is.

Any info appreciated

 

Doug Nicholson

Thanks

Wow, that's fantastic.      I'm positive that's her.   Do you know where she is moored so I can go and get a few snaps?

Sue grew up on that boat and remains one of the tidiest people I've ever met.  I can see why.

Many thanks,

Doug Nicholson

Hi Dougie

Glad to have been able to help, Medyna the very last JS White 72ft 6" MTB (number 253) was for sale with Whitton Marine Brokerage sales@whittonmarine.com last year, up for 85,000 with berth and two de-coupled Perkins P6 engines. She seems to have been sold as she is no longer on the internet, try asking them exactly where in Kent she is.

Good luck!

Hi there,

Regards 253 I believe she is still just next door to Whittion marine, I have a small houseboat in thier boatyard, but...could be mistaken now as have not really looked for her lately, should be over there in near future so will have a look to check.
