This week we have had a several very fine looking woodys appearing on WW, today we have another – Alecia and she comes to us from John Dawson who sent in the above photo.
With that very distinctive scroll (is that the correct term) on her bow Alecia couldn’t be anything other than a Bailey & Lowe design / build.
Do we know what became of the launch – is she still around today?
If you lose the tram top, its very similar to Harold Kidd’s old launch Romance II, also a Bailey & Lowe – photo below
UPDATE – SORRY IF YOU EXPERIENCED SOME DUPLICATION WITH THIS STORY – ALL SORTED NOW 🙂
This photo has appeared before on ww – in 2019.
Harold says 1920, Bailey and Lowe (Sulphur Point).
She looks so similar to ROMANCE (1), even down to the fairlead and ventilator, that I would call them sister ships. ROMANCE was 1914.
As always – thanks Paul. Alan H
