LADY ALICE

Today’s vessel is the Lady Alice & the photo ex ‘paperpast’, sent in by Nathan Herbert.

A very unusual mix of design features on display, can anyone help out with more detail on Lady Alice? The #957 will be a help.

LADY ALICE was a 30 footer built by George Roberts of St. Heliers for himself and launched in January 1940 with 957, her wartime reporting number, on her bows. A later owner (or of another LADY ALICE) was C.K. Edmonds of Allenby Road, Panmure who owned her as late as 1973.
George Roberts later built GAYELLA and GEORGELLA, well-covered in earlier WW postings.

While at Greg Lees yard yesterday I was advised that a gent that has ‘rubbed-up-against’ some of your best presented classic woodys last week had a very bad oops & has just come out of surgery & ends some help – see below.
