also found this slighly weathered looking Bourne 35, last time i saw her she had an Enviroment Agency notice on her for unpaid moorings (i think), shame really because there beautiful looking boats.

Is she ex-hire??

and finally i found this old hire yard, think they must've done short break hire on these two little (Beaver??) Narrowboats (Lady May and Lady Heather). Looks like they've been out of business for some years.

Were they ever in the brouchures or were they independant??

and Lady Heather. It looks like they've just been parked up and left, still have their outboards and curtains, still boards up advertising boat hire, bit like a desserted business!!

Hi Tom

My brain tells me they were called "Frojo Fleet", were independent and I once had a little A5 brochure that they produced, but can't guarantee any of it.  Can anyone else confirm?

Can't confirm the name of the hire yard but I was down at Denver in the summer. It seems the owner passed on to the great hire yard in the sky and there have been legal problems settling the estate. Hence the boats have remained untouched for quite some time.

The Bourne looks to be an ex Powles or Collins judging by the Bow plate

Thanks for that Trevor. I've allways wondered what happend there. It looked like someone had tried to clean up 'Lady May' but got fed up half way along it.

Thanks bill, i thought the Bourne must have been in a hirefleet.

Re the Bourne 35, I agree with Bill, she is a Collins built boat, either White Emblem or Silver Emblem depending on whether there is an aft well or not, can't tell from the photo
