Hi and welcome to the forum. Capella is listed on Craig's database, but not Capella II. You may already have found this, but if not here it is.

Hi Paul

A photo , make  or reg number would help start to trace the history.

Broads boats particularly ex hire boats can change their names frequently over the years particularly if they move yards or rivers.

An ex boat of mine was called two things in the Broads, a third on the  Thames, a fourth in York and a fifth by the time it came back to the Broads.

Good luck

Welcome to the forum.

Your boat is listed here, but you may already have that information. If the boat started life on the Broads, the Broads Authority Tolls Office may well still have some information about it. As has been said, the original Broads registration number would be helpful and its original name. Have you taken the drawers out and looked underneath them? The name of the boat (if it had been in hire) was often written there, to save confusion during winter lay-overs.

Craig's database, referred to above, also lists boats-by-builder, have a browse here and you might spot your boat.
