Tom,

Your photo is of an old Woods boat called variously Happytime, Dazzling Light and Gay Stream - I have 9 listed in the database, but I haven't seen any of them since 1997

There is a photo of D112

Note, you might have had no responses because the files you uploaded were very large - for posting to the forum, it is worth reducing them in size (to c100-200k) a bit so they load better - those in the depths of Norfolk still have dial up connections

I am glad that Craig came up with the answer. I was about to suggest that it was a salvaged hull with a DIY superstructure by someone who had spent too long in the Jenyns Arms.

That strange step in the roof is original, however, the chimney isn't, would have caused holidaymakers a few problems with bridges Evil Grin

Hi Craig,
The boat in question was built by Herbert Freeman of Beccles. The Herbert Woods connection comes in when Freeman retired and sold his yard to Woods. The yard is actually still there on the left hand bank above Beccles Bridge, although it is now used as storage rather than a boat yard. We used to have a one of his other boats, which was a Joytime class.

Cheers

Chris
