the pics are correct boy andrew is 33ft x 10ft 6 when i purchased the boat she was not in a great way she is lovely again weird thing I found a kevin craft plate in with stuff but it has a herbert woods plaque which has never been removed .
As far as I know, the day boat that George Formby Owned Was called Beryl after His dear wife as all his boats were,And the last I heard was for sale and had been rebuilt by Russell Marine of South Walsham.
Hi, When my Dad was a lad he met George Formby and his wife Beryl and they invited him aboard one of the Lady Beryl's, I can't ask him any specifics as he is no longer alive however I do remember him clearly stating it was moored at Herbert Woods yard, it was either an aft cockpit or sedan type boat built by Herbert Woods. Strangely only the Windboat centre cockpits get mentioned these days and I am certain it wasn't one of those, so he must have had atleast three boats over the years.
Hi Mix, I'm new to this Forum and have just come accross your post. We had two wonderful holidays on the Boy Andrew in (I think) 1965 and 1967. I still have many photos of the boat from those holidays. Would be happy to email them to you.
