Is This A Hole?

Preparing for fishing in 1982 we have (left to right): David Cocks, Richard Noble, John Ewens, Trevor McConnell and Joanne Ewens in the pushchair. John Ewens told us: “This is my daughter Joanne Ewens, who now has three children of her own. taken approximately 1982, I’m central in the photograph.”

They Think It Is A Rough Sea As Well

Perhaps a second discussion is required as to the strength of the sea? Richard Noble (driving) is in front of Barry James, Les Holliday and John Essay. The other boats occupants are unknown, can anybody assist?

That Sea Looks Rough

Looking at the waves behind, we are unsure as to whether this was before or after, but we have Les Holliday viewing the waves, John Essay is sitting in the boat ‘Cock-A-Leekie’, so called as it was prone to leaking! Richard Noble is seated on the tractor.

Launching Melinda Muriel

Richard Noble is driving the tractor and we have Keith Money and Stephan Tokarski working the boat. Believed to be launching owing to the absence of seagulls, often indicating a successful voyage; unless you know better? Shaun Clarkson has advised us that the boat was built by Billy Clarkson. Peter Appleton tells us: “The boat was named after Melinda Muriel Thomas, who would have been Stephen’s grandmother I think. She married one of my great-uncles, Robert Evans, at Brotton in 1927.”
