Hello,

I am new here. I believe the boat described near Gibralter could well be a vessel my uncle converted to a pleasure craft in the 1960s. Can anyone confirm the name? I am looking for "Marlynne" 60 foot TRV. It was blue and white in 1963. My uncle is very interested if this was his boat. He bought it from a chap in Mawdelsey, Lancashire and he was featured twice in the Lancashire Evening Poat in 1963 and 1964 when she was launched at Preston Dock. I can post these articles later.

Andrew

Hello all,

I wonder if anyone might be able to help, I am trying to find out about Caprella, where she is and how she is getting on. I saw the last post on this thread was a couple of years ago, are there any updates at all?

I sent a PM to the owner - Caprella in the hope it will get through. Can anyone help at all?

Thanks in advance,

Kind Regards,

George

John I have sent you a PM. I have owned Caprella since late 2009 with the view of restoring her to as original condition as possible. In the interim I have been going round the country trying to replace the missing items required to get her working mechanically, so far have got prop logs, shafts etc. Would be interested to know what items you have. Also I have a fair idea of much of her history with Sir Harry Ricardo, but not that much from the time that your Grandad owned her.

Hi. This is my grandad that owned this boat. I've spent many years since Internet searches existed to track down anything from this boat. Mr Joe Blackwell died in 1987 and it was sold before 1999 to be restored. We still have alot of The original parts from it that if it's still in action I'm sure the current owner would find of interest.last time I saw her she was sinking and in need of repair. My father has fond memories of her from childhood it was bought inn1956. 6 months after my dad was born. Does anyone know of where it currently is and what stste of repair?

Hello Andy.T.    Christian has posted a photo almost exactly the same as mine. I don't want to alarm the present owner but it looks as though a passing vessel may have damaged the starboard side. By the way if you go to the Brixham harbour web camb the Fairmile Western Lady is alongside waiting to go on the grid.
