The classic launch – Maybelle recently appeared on tme, so thanks to the listing and Ian McDonald we get to have a good look at Maybelle. Her tme listing has her from the Collings and Bell stable and 32’ 10” in length. She is powered by a Ford Lees 6 cyl. diesel engine that gets her along at 7>8 knots. Appears to be very well maintained and appointed.
Can anyone confirm the parentage and where she has been for the last 70+ years?
