In Boats of the Norfolk Broads it's name is Lorna. Suggest you start there.

Good luck

Graham

Looked in Blakes 1939 and 1947 brochures but can't see it.

There also appears to be mention of a boat called Lorna  in a December  2007 post by Dibbler . I can find the thread but not the actual post as my search skills are not of the best.

Good luck

ruby, do you mean this post http://www.the-norfolk-broads.co.uk/viewmessages.cfm?Forum=22&Topic=2948&srow=64&erow=74 I can't find one from Dibbler mentioning 'Lorna'. The 'Lorna' shown isn't the one the OP mentions.

rustica, have you spoken with the BA Tolls Department? They have substantial records and I have found them to be very helpful with this sort of enquiry.

I've taken a look back, Dibblers photo back in 2005 in a thread called derelict boats is not relevant, it's a different boat all together. I haven't been through the full thread though to see if there's any reference to a boat called Lorna as I'm just dashing out....

Edit to add I've just noticed Pally has already looked and any references to a boat called Lorna are not boat being asked about.
