Scow 230 ‘Seamew’


The photo on the left shows a Scow, number 230, on display at the London Boat Show at Olympia.

And that was all I knew until I discovered Gavin Atkin’s excellent weblog, intheboatshed.net .  Here you can read Clea Rawinsky’s account of finding a rather second-hand looking Seamew in the corner of a boat shed near her home, and of the boat’s restoration by boatbuilder Bob Hinks.  I’ll say no more, the full story, beautifully written, is best read at intheboatshed.net.
